On the nose an embracing and sinuous wine, generously fruity with the sweetness of fresh, yellow and juicy fruit, lemon gumdrops, orange zest and sage. The mouthfeel is even more flavoury than the bouquet, soft and rounded, with abounding and lingering fruity notes, reminiscent of the sweetness of the grapes and the saltiness of the land. A great white wine for ageing.
