Wine Details

Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) Taste is wildflower honey with a buttery aftertaste. Apple from the nose comes through as well. Oak is less pronounced in the taste than in the nose but it still has a touch of woody spice. Smooth and a bit on the drier side but remarkably approachable for someone that typically prefers sweet wines.

    (2006 Vintage) Slightly toasty first notes are joined by a vanilla custard-like scent in the surprisingly low-key aromas of this ripe, but quietly fruity, full-bodied wine. It comes with a full measure of supportive acid and a nice sense of backbone, but it never quite convinces that it has the stuffing to open up into greatness, and its past success notwithstanding, it trails the best here.
