The wine displays a delicate gold color with deeper highlights and a tropical fruit nose (passion fruit) with a touch of lemon and, later, pineapple. Delicate white floral notes (mimosa, iris), honey. A complex palate with lush, smooth, ripe fruit announcing an exquisite texture. Surprisingly dense, wonderfully fresh, with vanilla, almond and elegant oak on the long-lasting finish. The typical minerality of classic Barsacs is barely noticeable at this point, but will emerge as the wine matures.
