Pithy yellow grapefruit on the nose, with sweetness from baked apple and white peach. There is a floral, slightly exotic character which goes from bergamot citrus to elderflower and lychee. A sense of the lees-ageing time comes across in the creaminess and fullness on the palate, offsetting the pith/chalk/herbs which are even keenly-felt in the absence of any dosage. Quite unusual balance with pretty low acidity – just a touch soapy. Possibly one to try in a cooler vintage.
