(2013) Fermented in French oak barrels, this has lovely nuttiness, a big bowl of almonds and hazelnut, with plenty of juicy apple and hints of toast, but it is direct and appealing. The palate has an alert juiciness; there's nothing cloying or overdone here, the squirting lemon juiciness of the acidity and cool apple crunch of the fruit are lovely, just a little spice and modest vanilla in the finish.
