Very pale color, especially in the context of the year. Reticent but vibrant nose hints at fresh apple, spearmint, talc, ginger and gun metal. Rich, full, sweet and pure, with highly concentrated, brisk flavors of lime, mint and spices.

...gorgeously complex nose of minerals, white flowers... ...leads to pure, muscular, fantastically detailed and precise flavors just oozing with sappy extract... ...quite concentrated and there is a certain regal classiness...
