Editor note: Cool, polished nose, citrus and stone fruit, elegant vegetal and light yeasty as well as floral notes, prominent mineral notes, hint of lemon verbena in the background. Fairly firm, juicy, slightly off-dry fruit on the palate, lively, elegant acidity, herbaceous, floral and yeasty aromas, some bite, good persistence, still largely undeveloped, slightly rough, light salty mineral notes, hint of tobacco, not particularly deep, clear contours, very good firm finish. Needs time to mature.
