Pale and bright yellow colour. The nose shows less of the typical floral aromas but much more spicy intensity. Quite open at this early stage, it has a nice purity. Like many 2014s, the attack and palate is more intense than expected. The wine has a dry structure but delicate roundness, enhanced by nice acidity so there is neither excess weight nor austerity or bitterness. The wine opens up very nicely and is showing less varietal character. The finish is dry, long and harmonious. This makes it extremely interesting with food, and not just of the spicy types.
