Slightly closed, subdued nosed but offers bouquet garni, honey and lanolin. The palate is where it hits the mark. Textured and creamy but still retaining its acid spine. Flavours of lemon curd, almonds and herbs. Medium bodied but a lovely mid palate intensity and a long finish. Superb. Was currently on offer any a steal for such a lovely aged wine.

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.
