96The Wine Advocate

...notes of peach, pear and honeycomb with nuances of beeswax, warm bread and orange oil. Full-bodied, multidimensional and textural, it's a powerful, muscular wine that's concentrated and satiny without being unctuous, balanced by racy acids.

The beautifully layered and markedly-floral inflected nose features notes of ripe white orchard fruit and citrus elements that are framed by suggestions of petrol, matchstick and a whiff of wood.

...offering scents of yellow fruits, earth and clove; one can smell the flesh here. Very rich, tactile and smooth, conveying a strong impression of dry extract to its yellow orchard fruit and spice flavors.
