Tasting notes: Wines of distinct character on the nose and palate expressing lots of freshness. A concentration of fleshy fruit. Great natural structure and precise definition. Without frills, the wines are four-square and austere, and this is their attraction. The finish offers a lingering tactile mouth-feel with freshness coming through together with definition and an enveloping sensation.
