A deceptively complex and incredibly youthful nose that features cut pear, fresh quince and lemon blossom. A savoury line is also evident with sesame brittle, cinnamon stick, rice wafer and hints of cornmeal.
On the palate, woven layers of intense white fleshed fruits, diligent oak handling and effortless texture meet seamlessly and are driven by a mineral saline acid spine. Pears, grapefruit and white nectarine are the key fruits of the palate, which is focused with remarkable length and possesses amazing longevity.
“95 points. Aromatically tight, but expansive and expressive in the mouth, pouring out its pear, green guava and fig flavors in a generous stream, with glints of spice. Comes together smoothly on a deftly balanced frame to let the finish sail on and on. Drink now through 2030.”Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator, June 2013
“94 points. Pale, green hued-yellow. A pungent, mineral-driven bouquet exudes orange zest, fresh pear, lemongrass and chamomile, with a note of iodine coming up with air. Deeply pitched, taut orchard fruit and mineral flavors stain the palate, with zesty minerality providing lift. The iodine note repeats on the finish, which leaves suave mineral and floral notes behind. Noteworthy for its blend of power and finesse; this bottling's track record for aging is very impressive.”Josh Raynolds, The International Wine Cellar, July/August 2013
