The palate is equally impressive, with the crisp, natural acidity delivering a distinct pink grapefruit character which then broadens on the tongue to reveal fig and peach flavours, with hints of pineapple. The finish is elegantly balanced, showing remarkable complexity and ideal structure for bottle maturation.
