Five years on.

Pale gold. There is a shortbread richness here enlivened by hints of fresh lime, well-integrated quinine, white pepper and the bitterness of pit and pith. Icy threads of hoar frost yield to the sweetness of pollen and overripe quince. The yin yang exchange really hypnotizes the palate, a beguiling aspect many observers associate with the high schist content in the soil. Now – 2025+.
