Tasting notes

Full of stone fruit character, this wine shows a very soft palate. A more ripe style with combination of ripe fruit and body. Slightly higher in alcohol and really flowery finish.

81 / 100 14.5 / 20

Very pale straw, hint of green. Subtle, spicy, 'green' fruit, leafy. Nicely balanced, fruit and crisp acidity, delicious mid, just a touch light on the finish (another 6 months?).

90 / 100 17 / 20

Slightly confected: peach conserve, crystallised lemons. Palate is rich and full, promises plenty of flavour. Style is of baked apples, cream, sweet spice. Fades to a lightly chalky finish
