Light, bright yellow hue with a soft, somewhat shy, faintly reductive, gas-pipe note to the tea-leafy bouquet, which also has notes of lemon juice, kaffir lime leaf and honey. The palate is intense and rich, medium-sweet and balanced, with harmony and length, if not quite the tension and vitality of which this vineyard is capable at its best. Very smart wine all the same.
