Tasting note: There is a touch of petrol character to the mildly exotic orchard fruit aromas where hints of lychee nut can be found. The nicely rich, round and delicious middle weight flavors possess lovely complexity on the sappy and persistent finish. This is really quite good and should drink well young.
