Previously available for $19.84
Tight and focused on the nose with some waxy notes and hints of apricot pits followed by effusive white flowers, hints of cotton candy, mint and ginseng. Rich in the mouth but at the same time this is rather clear on the palate, light and fresh, if not particularly bright. The fruit is beautifully detailed with notes of citrus, raw cashew, suggestions of honey and tart orchard fruits all coming together elegantly on the palate. A fine salty mineral note punctuates the backend along with some contrasting bitter pithy notes and hints of peach skin that add fine detail through the long, salty and decisive finish. Lovely stuff. Really shows great depth of flavor and solid length. 92pts
