I had dinner with the legendary Broomie last week and we, as usual, got stuck into some gems. This wine in particular is an old favourite for both of us.
Youthful green gold, bright n' shiny.
Fresh tropical nose with spice and a juicy fleshiness that hints a fibrous (mango?) texture.
So good. Ripe & honeyed melon/serrano fruit with pithiness and subtly layered beeswax & starfruit skinned mouthfeel that reveals minerality as it retreats. Then that fibrous fleshiness lingers with perfumed white fruit and something darker, flintier, on the finish.
Drink now, later and for the next decade. Maybe longer.
