I think I’ve caught this too early – it just didn’t seem together quite yet. Not like the 2012 at least. A precise wine still mind you.
This dances on the edge of ripeness – mainly grapefruit with just a dash of vanilla bean hessian oak. Palate is quite fruity given the nose, all peach and a little tropical fruits, the finish quite firmly acidic too.
Lacks the balance this year, though will get better – you get the impression that the acid and fruit ripeness just doesn’t match, the product of a warm season.
