Cool, rather tart, clearly planty to herbaceous nose with citrus notes, some apple and stone fruit as well as floral, slightly nutty and quite distinct mineral tones. Only restrained, with air present, very ripe, partly candied fruit, yeasty nuances, delicately nutty and vegetable, quite lively acidity, noticeable tannin grip, good substance and sustainability, has power and warmth, clear minerality, some yellow spice, very good, quite firm, again quite mineral finish with warm fruit
