Bright yellow colour. The nose is already expressive for such a young wine. Of course, long lees contact (2 years) and the recent bottling explain a slight austerity. Nevertheless, the granite is well present in this wine: opulent rich nose with white fruit aromas, acacia honey and grinded stones, almost smoky. The same goes for the palate, so characteristic of Brand. The wine coats the palate, is long and reveals great depth and complexity. The acidity is ripe, caresses the palate without being aggressive but is well present and explains a racy dry finish. I would expect a great ageing potential.
