"Limpid orange. Fresh red berries, nectarine and a building floral quality on the mineral-tinged nose. Juicy and focused on the palate, displaying lively red currant, strawberry, peach and dusty mineral qualities. Finishes very long and silky, with repeating florality and a late touch of succulent herbs."
