Lovely sweet floral and spice notes in the nose along with honeyed citrus, tropical fruit, and hazelnuts. Pure and focused in the mouth with lively acidity, and some vanilla and stone fruit flavors emerge before the lingering and mineral-tinged finish takes over. In this tasting and at this early age, the wine is overtly oaky when first opened, but but this recedes nicely with airing. - HK 2016-07-29
