Pale, bright yellow. Reduced nose offers scents of lemon, lime, ginger and smoke. Round, dense and solid, displaying very good palate presence and lovely grapefruit pith lift. Still a bit youthfully folded in on itself but this medium-bodied, long wine should be a beauty with another year in the bottle.
