Complex and inviting on the nose where subtle orange rind, almond, wild flower and creamy peach aromas are deftly woven together. Bright and rather effusive on entry, there’s a nice mineral note up front followed by bright if subtle peach and lemon flavors all layered over dried grass and pressed flowers aromas with a hint of honeycomb on the backend. This is rather powerful in the mouth with a suggestion of sweetness given the softness over the acid here, though this finishes quite dry with modest length to the spicy and floral inner mouth perfumes. Still it is a powerhouse and impressie and will no doubt improve in the cellar over the medium term. 90pts

This keeps the cooks and galley slaves smiling, as well.
