Old, dry-farmed, low-yielding bush vines that produce highly concentrated grapes. Fabulous nose of apple and spiced vanilla meets honeyed peach scents with overtones of lemon verbena and toast. The concentrated creamy palate is outstanding, with fat tropical and stone fruit flavours, tangy lemon zest and green apple acidity playing against a hint of sweetness in the lingering finish
Ready for drinking now, but to give yourself a sublime experience in four/five years time, we suggest that you hold a few bottles back to mature into a sumptuous and rewarding treat – very much like an aged Vouvray!
