Pretty Good

At time of writing, somewhat restrained – white florals attempting to unfurl. Needs time! An aromatic mosaic of white stone-fruit, mandarin blossom, peach nectar and wild thyme. A lees-derived savoury/nougat edge, with a suggestion of white chocolate praline lurking in the background. Fresh sea-spray and a wet chalk/limestone mineral ‘dampness’ hesitantly attest to cool-climate sourcing, or soils, or lees management, or…? Perhaps all of the above? Formidable No gaps, a densely-packed structural continuum. Not huge, not massive, yet taut, muscular, feisty. A black palimpsest - black fruits, black liquorice, black pudding, black fig, black cardamom.... Granitic chewy tannins linger and coat; oak all but fully concealed, submerged beneath a tannin/oak/acid/flavour tsunami. Fruits? Where to start in this entanglement? Time please.
