Restrained exoticism showing but a faint whiff of guava, pineapple and paw paw. Steely in the mouth with all sorts of interesting flavours still under a tight rein from the wines structural elements. Good density and volume and really builds through the palate finishing long and minerally.
From a magnum...mango, papaya and grapefruit with grassy overtones in the nose, acidic grapefruit tinged flavors and a steely finish. Hoped to age this one for ten years but glad I did not wait longer. Flavors are definitely unusual, which may appeal to some, but for me, not much more than a quaffer at this point. Very different from this bottling in its youth.
