Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: RH 16.5 JH-S 17 SS 18.5
Impressive, ripe, full-flavoured style. Quite rich stone fruit character plus a flash of juniper bitterness – interesting and characterful. Still fresh with acid in great balance and with lovely length and drive.
