This is nicely mineral on the nose with sweet backing tones of ripe pear and dried apple fruit. Showing a touch of sugar in it’s roundness, though coming across as fairly dry due to the firma acids here, this is balanced and rich if not terrible large scaled. The fruit flavors, heirloom orchard fruits with a wash or orange marmalade and some attractive spice tones show excellent depth. There’s a nice mineral element on the back end here that adds tension. The orangy tones brighten with some air and lend an orange blossom top note to the inner mouth perfumes. The finish gains a touch of green plum on the moderate long slightly peppery finish. This really grows on my with it’s subtlety. 91pts
