A deft touch of wood sets off the cool and pretty aromas of white flowers, pear and citrus zest, along with a hint of rosemary oil. There is once again very good punch to the delicious and attractively textured medium-bodied flavors that also exude a refreshing salinity on the lingering and balanced finale. This isn't especially refined though it stops short of rusticity and overall, this too is worthy of consideration.
Planted in white in 1979 and 1989. Pale primrose, the bouquet is just beginning to show. Plenty of energy here, a freshness at the finish but also considerable weight from the deep clay soil. Works pretty well across the palate.
