Judges Tasting Notes

Burnished gleaming golden yellow colour, lacy silvery bead. A flinty, smoky aroma initially. Nectarine and nougat, lemon posset, brioche, orange curd, stem ginger, oyster shell and wet chalk. Exciting youthful palate, bursting with clean vivid stone and citrus fruit flavours complexed with notes of honey, truffle, biscuit, and wet chalk. There is superb refined elegance here, perfectly poised controlled power, with a long life ahead.
