Wine Spectator

Packs ripe, fleshy mango, peach and dried apricot flavors that show terrific focus and persistence, with details of pear, lemon zest, candied ginger and lemongrass. Shows impressive focus on the long finish, with a fresh thread of acidity that keeps the flavors lively and mouthwatering.

WE91

Wine Enthusiast

Floral and buttery aromas open this full-bodied, creamy-textured wine that offers a soft mouthfeel and the roundness that comes from aging on the lees. Concentrated peaches, melons and a good viscosity help the wine stand out.

Decanter

Pronounced aromatics of lychee and kiwi are intermixed with jasmine and orange blossoms. Sur lie ageing for four months in 18% new French oak with batonnage twice weekly lends a creamy mid-palate richness and weight balanced by refreshing acidity.
