TASTING NOTES

Unusual aroma – almond paste and something more herbal as well as the rich, spicy citrus. Powerful bitter-orange flavours, deep and long. More power than elegance at this stage. Long, tangy finish.

17/20

Lots of powdered mushrooms, dried lemons and apricots. Full-bodied, dense and layered. Beautiful finish. A top sweet white for the vintage.
