Some very interesting and good wines coming out of this project. Seems to be a bent for textural, savoury whites. Here’s a good example.

Lemon and sea spray scents, faint cashew, whiff of fennel. Palate is a little weak in flavour though you do get a whisper of similar things to the bouquet, with a nice nutty slide to finish. Texture is great too, quite dense and silky, despite the watercolour fruit flavours. Good, finer expression, you could say.
