93-94James Suckling

There’s a spiced hazelnut edge across an array of white peaches and citrus fruits. It has a strong core structure with fleshy surrounds. Long, dense and smooth. Terrific.

92The Wine Advocate

...bursts with a dramatic bouquet of honeyed peaches, yellow orchard fruit and ripe pear, framed by a delicate touch of toasty new oak.

92+ Stephen Tanzer

Peach and acacia flower dominate the nose, with notes of minerals and spices emerging with air. Quite round and sweet on entry, then rich and rather powerful in the middle palate...

...succulent, round and concentrated medium-bodied flavors that possess an almost juicy mouth feel before terminating in an vibrant, refreshing and sneaky long finish.

17.5Jancis Robinson

Seductive, ripe fruit with a touch of orange in the citrus, almost pineapple but not that tropical. Rich and mouth-filling and still fresh. So satisfying and utterly moreish.
