Pale, bright yellow. Pungent aromas of crushed herbs, white pepper, menthol and citrus zest. Densely packed, tactile and tight, revealing a faintly nutty quality to its citrus, menthol and mineral flavours. Good salty extract here but not yet expressive. This will need at least a couple years in bottle to reveal its full personality. A bit aggressive on the finish, with the wine's fruit currently muted by alcohol, but has the energy and spiciness to reward some patience.

"This is intense, offering lime blossom, apple, citronella and mineral aromas and flavors. Racy, with terrific harmony and a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 375 cases made."
