Light to medium yellow hue, with a lightly smoky, wheaty-oak and roasted cashew nut bouquet, the palate intense and refined, long and saline. Oak is visible but not unbalanced, and will vanish in a year or so. It's rich and powerful and fills the mouth with flavour, the finish and follow-through underlined by a subtle tannin grip. This vintage is remarkably overt for a young Tiers.
