Colour

A silky yellow amber colour.

Nose

Fine and delicate notes of hazelnut appear at first, wit notes of delicately milky breadcrumbs. Aromas of yellow fruit, such as peaches and apricots, can gradually be discerned, which are then succeeded by notes of candied citrus fruit, orange and mandarin. This diverse expression finishes with spices as well as tobacco and black tea.

Palate

This cuvée shows a pleasant tension with a lush and attractive character on entry. Barley sugar comes through on the midpalate with a wonderful freshness. A wine endowed with lovely complexity and a remarkably clean, well-defined character. The ensemble is elegant, well-balanced and complex, complemented by honeyed aromas of candied citrus fruit that bring a lovely lusciousness.
