An expressive nose of spring flowers, lemon zest and dried orange, with subtle notes of garrigue herbs, mint and a hint of stony minerality. The palate is at the same time quite soft and almost creamy, but with plenty of countering acidity. Similarly, flavours of ripe peach and water melon are accompanied by notes of spiced apple, soft citrus zest and herbs, with a subtly saline, mineral tang. At a shade over 4 years of age, this wine is delightfully fresh and relatively youthful, and although it is great to drink now, it will certainly go for another 2 or 3 years yet. Lovely wine - and a real bargain at this price!
