Consistent with my previous note; Just so airy and floral on the palate, with a lovely melange of dried red fruits, earth and minerals; Love this stuff

The nose is quite savory, with notes of green pepper, herbs and smoky bacon, while the palate is fairly elegant, with some pleasant dark fruits integrating with the more savory elements; Not the most complex Wind Gap I've had, but quite tasty

Definitely on the ripe and generous side, with a big palate of sweet blackberries and vanilla, but remains in balance with some firm acidity and tannins; An easy-drinker that I enjoyed which may pick up some complexity over the next few years

Slightly closed off right now, but you can tell there's excellent underlying material; The palate is very dry, with hints of salted caramel, pear and beeswax, with a medium-to-full body that still feels light on its feet; There is terrific acidity on the finish, with lingering notes of wax and saline
