Medium green-yellow. Ripe papaya aromas and flavors are delicately laced by orange zest and complicated by verbena, dill and a touch of blossom honey. Despite the opulence of the nose and the wine's full body, there's a very firm structure here, thanks to a brilliantly integrated spine of acidity and a powerful mineral underpinning. Dark wet slate, pepper, lemon zest and salty minerals linger impressively on the long finish. Although already quite approachable, this wine will continue to gain in bottle for many years. Drink 2012 to 2023.
