This vintage displays a slightly cooler twist and lovely minerality. On the nose there are expressive fruit characters of white nectarine, pear and lychee melded with more savoury-spice aromas of almond croissant and ginger. The palate is fine and delicate, with a pure pear-juice character, and a long lingering finish.
Golden yellow in colour, tinged with green, fruity aromas with complex characters revealing notes of passionfruit, apricot and floral characters such as lime and honey. In the mouth it has remarkable elegance, a complex structure, firm and persistent.
A tightly wound balance of minerality and citrus, evolving over time into a more viscous expression of wildflowers, clover honey and mature pear. Vespa Bianco can be further aged up to 7 - 10 years after the vintage.
