The art of gentle, slow seduction. Meyer lemon rind, then complex matchstick sulphides waft in and out as mineral-charged peach and nectarine notes emerge to dominate the aroma. Oak sits back; supporting and coaxing the textural white stone fruits to roll on the palate. Mineral laden acidity then draws citrus infused flavours longer on the palate. This year the fruit asserts itself whilst the artefact shadows - supporting but not interrupting the fruits pristine performance. Another high-end release of Giaconda chardonnay.
