Pale gold straw, fresh lifted aromas of citrus, peach and nectarine with very subtle vanillin oak This elegant wine displays citrus and stone fruit characters with a light touch of vanillin oak imparting length. The wine finishes with refreshing acidity that balances the botrytis sweetness very nicely.
When new wine drinkers first set off trying in vain to describe the features of a wine in words, they are inevitably frustrated in being able to discern anything other than â€œwineyâ€ or â€œgrapeyâ€. The wine vocabulary as we all know comes with time and much experience.
Well this wine will help you with developing the wine vocab when it comes to apricots.
Pure apricots bound through the aromas, more apricots and even more apricots follow and when it finally rolls down the throat, the apricots follow all the way to the end. Wine newbies, close your eyes and the rest will follow, trust me. Having made my point that the apricots have their place in this wine, there are also glorious orange marmalade, molasses and honey features that all add to the dramatically evocative nose. There is also a lovely smooth richness and creaminess that makes it opulent and luscious to drink but not overly cloying. Indeed it is quite balanced with a lovely subtle nuttiness to it and lively acidity still. The palate is seamless, refined and long. Drink Now. 94-95/100 â€“ Excellent Verging On Superb.
