Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Pale yellow. Orange blossom, grapefruit pith, nettles, white pepper and a pungent whiff of herbs. Brisk, lemony and penetrating, but with a leesy hint and saline minerality giving surprising pliancy to the middle palate. Finishes quite dry, with firm citrus zest and mineral notes.
