Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Gold in colour, with amber highlights. Rich and aromatic on the nose with notes of dry apricots and fresh peach. The palate is balanced and elegant in structure. Rounded and ripe with well integrated fresh acidity and a long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) Glistening yellow-gold. The nose offers up an extremely refined cocktail of fruits and spices. Seductive richness, freshness, aromatic quality and of course length on the palate. A remarkably refined wine.

Expert Reviews
  • Decanter
    Rating: 2/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Nose almost like a Riesling Auslese, and a very elegant, very minerally, distinctive palate. Absolutely characteristic of the best Filhots. Ready 2007 onwards.. (Tasted en primeur)
