A warm summer and lingering autumn produced beautifully ripe fruit. Late season rain produced a nice proportion of nobly botrytic berries which has given the wine extra flavour and depth.
The bouquet and flavour suggest peaches, apricots, lychees, frangipani, honeysuckle and mandarin. It is concentrated and mouth filling with a backbone of minerality and tangy acidity that complements it’s off dry finish and draws out its length. With careful cellaring it should develop a complex range of other nuances and live for a decade or more.
