Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Dry and focused, this mineral-driven version offers lots of ground white pepper and ginger notes, with an open-knit mesh of crunchy apricot, lychee, grapefruit zest and melon rind.

Winemaker's Notes

Barely off-dry, with just enough residual sweetness to bring out the grape's tropical fruit and gingery spice, with plenty of acidity in the background providing plenty of refreshing lift.

    (From 1990 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Glorious colour; some botrytis on the nose. Delicious, rich finish. Floral, rosewater aromas. Big, ripe, positive fruit flavours. Great concentration and length. Complex mixture of honey, oranges and spice.
  • Wine & Spirits
    (From 2007 Vintage) This dry, tangy version offers a lot of the grape's signature rose petal and cream flavors, but is also infused with hints of curry spices and plenty of red grape fruit and candies pouring peel. Bright acidity crackles through to the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2019.
