Cellar release. Honey and lemony aromas followed up by a lovely toasty, creamy mouthfeel. The palate is support by some zesty acidity that produces a lovely balance and long finish. Beautiful intensity about this wine. Demonstrates that it is worth cellaring rather than drinking early. Still has a long way to go but as it stands it’s at a nice age to drink.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
