Subtle aromatics with thyme and white peach. A delicate and dusty mouthfeel is finessed by fine mineral drive. The palate is poised with integrated oak and linear, mineral core.

Initially delicate. Flinty notes give way to bright, precise, Otago aromas of shortbread, thyme and white peach. The palate is poised and integrated with a focused, linear, mineral core.

The fruit is subtle and subdued but background notes of flint hinting at its underlying complexity. By contrast the palate is plush and concentrated in texture, but with the flavours so focussed that minerality dominates right through to a long, tight but not austere finish. A thrilling wine already showing hints of the complexity to come.
