"There is a whiff of the exotic to the overtly smoky nose that features notes of both white and yellow orchard fruit, spice, wet stone and a floral hint. There is a lovely sense of energy and intensity to the well-detailed and quite stony flavors that possess excellent complexity on the gently toasty finish that displays impressive length. This should amply reward mid to even longer-term cellaring as in contrast to a number of the wines in the range, the finish is quite linear. Burghound 93 points

"Bright, pale yellow-green. Vibrant, nuanced nose combines lemon, lime, spices and flowers. At once dense and juicy, conveying a sappy impression of energy and tensile strength to its flavors of citrus fruits and crushed stone. Boasts superb definition and stains the palate on the rising, vibrant back end, which leaves behind a distinctly salty impression. This wine has been balanced from the start, noted Ramonet. It's a beauty in the making but needs time in bottle to fill in and expand. (Drink between 2024-2033)" Vinous 92+ points
