Huon Hooke

Bright, light to medium yellow colour, with a mellow toasty bouquet with savoury nutty overtones (some barrel involvement?) and the palate has good intensity and drive, concluding with very bright acidity. Lemon meringue on the nose and palate. Mouthwatering acidity: indeed, it needs food, as it's unbalanced on its own. The finish is long and invigorating.
