Bath salts, kaffir lime, hints of mandarin and blossom - hallmark lemon zing and ting. It had me thinking of Thai cuisine, fresh aromatics - at you. So fresh.
Generous, open, sharp - acid early on, steely mineral and hints of key lime pie. These flavours race through the palate, carrying a line. Now, unlike previous releases there was more width, more ballgown than pencil-line skirt if i can dabble (likely erroneously) in a ladies fashion analogy. The line is true, yet also vibrant with a hitherto not normally seen width.
Hints of tropical fruit towards the finish, guava-esque. Excellent length, a touch soapy at its conclusion. Fresh, more-ish and likely to give pleasure in the cellar for up to 10 years. 94 - Excellent
