Pale straw with subtle green hues. The precision and minerality of quartz and slate, a nose of varietal purity, linear definition and subtley soft, line and length. Heady jasmine florals mix with spicy tones of freshly ground cinnamon. Perfumed and complex. The juice of freshly picked new season limes combines with a slatey, minerality which belies the powerful strength of line and definition. Crystalline clarity and structural purity persist to leave the palate invigorated and cleansed.
