"Youthful, floral and sweet citrus scented bouquet. White flowers and mineral, white peach and apple, some lemon and pear suggestions. Palate reflects the nose with a youthful, firmly textured and finely tuned flavours. Plenty of acidity, moderate measure of oak, well made and cellar ready. Best drinking from late 2020 through 2025."
