Nicely complex and alluring bouquet with aromas of ripe white and yellow fleshed stone fruits, red apple, quince, honeysuckle and grapefruit. Other aromas stem from oak with scents of vanilla and baking spices - vanilla and a touch of clove. There’s a fine toasty quality as well adding complexity and depth. On the palate - weighty, smooth and fine with a satin cream texture, contrasting acidity and bite of oak. Flavours of fruits are at the core with tree, stone and citrus fruits all speaking. Coming into balance, refreshing and lengthy. Youthful, well made and best enjoyed from mid 2021 through 2026.93 pts - Sam Kim (Wine Orbit)
Fabulously elegant and delightfully complex, showing nectarine, lemon peel, vanilla and cashew notes with a hint of oatmeal on the nose. The palate displays excellent weight and rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully supported by refined texture and bright acidity, finishing persistent and smooth.
