Very citrussy on the nose with lemon and lime notes and some interesting, starchy green cactus leaf/aloe leaf. There are some hints of oak with perhaps a touch of fennel, but this is rather high toned and fruit driven, if atypical. Rather light bodied on entry, this gains weight in the mouth and shows fine inner mouth tension and a lovely, sleek structure supporting ripe but not weighty fruit. There’s more green on the palate which is not unpleasant, but is unusual in that the citrus fruits are backed with that soft, vegetal tone. The finish is lovely with sour fruits, underlying wood spices and a nice pop of minerality that refreshes the palate. I love the mouth feel here, mostly taut but covered with a gauze of fruit. 88pts
