This wine has layers of fruit complexity supported with integrated wood. Typical aromas are green characters of green fig with tropical arrays of white pears, pineapple and minerality. The wine has a full mid palate with complex fruit following through and results in a wine with a great length and fruit acidity. The palate is well structured with an oily texture.
