Subtle stony, minerally aromas. More floral and herbal with talc, camomile, lime leaves. On the palate the wine is dry and displays wet stone and strong green apple acidity. Powerful intense wine. So lean and racy. Built to age. Impressive single vineyard wine.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
