Winemaker's Tasting Notes:
Very intense and multi-layered, the bouquet is dominated by forest spring flowers, honeysuckle, lily, acacia, orange blossom, with white peach, lemon, lime, William pear, grapefruit, honey, minerals. The rich and delicate, zesty flavors follow seamlessly from the aroma. Layered, elegant and very long, the estate’s signature wet stone minerality balances the richness lending a superb refinement to the finish. Build to age, the 2009 L’Après-Midi is already revealing itself as a superb expression our estate’s terroir.
