Medium golden yellow, silver reflections. Fine blossom honey, a hint of bourbon vanilla, ripe yellow tropical fruit, candied orange zest, delicate ripe mango, mace and orange blossom in the background. Juicy, the residual sweetness of 138g/l is evident in this opulent but not lush style, well-integrated oak, salty minerality, still somewhat underdeveloped, a hint of apricot on the finish, good length, very harmonious and already easy to drink, endowed with certain ageing potential. (Tasted by Peter Moser in early 2022).
