NVWE Notes: Reflective of the tiny 2015 crop, this is a well-concentrated wine. The nose offers youthfully tight scents of golden fig, green melon, Persian raisin, lime candy, preserved lemon, white pepper and honey. Golden fig, bees wax, honeysuckle and melon dominate on the palate, with gooseberry, white pepper and preserved lemon in the background. The finish is rich and lingering, with gooseberry and Persian raisin hints creating a bit of contrast at the end. If likely to be even more generous and expressive in eighteen months or so, it will prove very tasty right now if served with roasted chicken or sauced fish.
NVWE Notes: Polished and supple, this lovely wine pairs forthcoming fruit with intriguing hints of Oriental spices. The aromas are a harmonious mix of sweet dark plum, black raspberry, blueberry, black currant, violet, black fig, sandalwood, vanilla, baking-spice and mocha-coffee scents. It provides some unexpected zest on the palate, in support of black cherry, dried blueberry, dark plum, Asian plum sauce, sandalwood, coriander seed, mace, and bay leaf flavors. Chinese five-spice, star anise and a peppercorn undercurrent chime-in at the end. Already well-evolved and food-friendly, it will grow steadily more attractive over the next two years and beyond.
