The wine was carefully racked out of barrel in February 2023 and bottled in
June 2023 without filtration. The wine has a powerful nose which is a mix of lemon meringue, flint, oak spice, hazelnuts and toast, the acid line is long and taut but balanced out by a rich and smooth texture. The wine is drinking deliciously well now but it will continue to improve with age.
