WA90 drink 2011-2025 Tasted single blind at Southwold. A very ripe, sumptuous bouquet engendered with a sorbet-like character: orange/mango notes coming through although it is lacking a little focus (though no greenness that it showed out of barrel.) The palate is better: soft, harmonious and approachable, clean and svelte on the finish with a touch of spice/ black cedar-infused fruits. Very fine, nice purity – this is a great showing. Drink 2011-2025. Tasted January 2009.
