Wine Details

Wine Description

(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.

    (2004 Vintage) A younger and somewhat simpler version of the wine above, it shares its strong bent towards the green side of the spectrum, and with its convincing fruit, bright acidity and ability to age for a few years, it has every chance of catching up the 2003 version in very short order.
