Roasted almonds, preserved lemon and peach characters only begin to scratch the surface of an abundant aroma profile. The wild yeast fermentation has created complexity and lifted aromatics, backed up with nice fruit concentration and oak integration. The palate is defined by some nice acidity; enough to be light on its feet, yet with focus and direction. A voluptuous brassy blonde woman wearing a Chanel suit.
