GOLD, IWSC - LONDON 2019
A pale green/gold colour belies the intense development of this wine. An initial sweet burst of lime, toast and spice fruit is followed by a nicely balanced palate, with a touch of sweetness. There's also delicate yet assertive fruit, with notes of lemon curd and intense white fruit. This is a wine of refinement and great balance.
Estate-grown on a steeply sloping site at Lowburn, the lovely 2011 vintage (5*) is a medium style (18 grams/litre of residual sugar.) A distinctive wine that tastes half its age, it has a youthful, bright, light lemon/green hue. Finely scented, with deep, vibrant, citrusy, limey flavours, it has excellent delicacy, poise and depth. Well worth discovering.
