Apricot and white peach flavours wind around a creamy core of cashew kernel, curd and truffle, derived from a wild yeast fermentation, lees work and high quality toasty oak. The wine boasts intensity of flavour and sneaky persistence, building nicely as it opens. Still, the overall impression is one of tension, smoky chiselled phenolics and punchy acidity steering the ship. Cool and brimming with intent.
