Tasting Note:

Stone fruit notes dominate the nose. The palate shows a harmonious mix of citrusy clementine and lemon zest notes together with more tropical, nutty and buttery characteristics.

A more elevated north-facing site than the Block 2, giving a more powerful, riper wine. Aged for 17 months in used French oak barrels.
