...complex, compellingly savory/earthy nose of toasted almonds, cloves, damp soil, crushed stones and yeast extract with a core of peach preserves, lemon tart, dried pineapple and allspice. Rich, spicy and decadent in the mouth, with a racy backbone lifting the fruit, it finishes long and multilayered.
...Ripe cling peach, fresh apricot, spices, coconut, minerals and white flowers...wonderfully pure and precise...utterly seamless texture and compelling sweetness but also lovely inner-mouth tension...The clear star in my 2008 tasting.
Beautiful lemon cream, chamomile and fried pineapple notes, with a refreshing, almost floral edge...Creamy coconut and green plum notes fill in on the finish, which has admirable length. A restrained, lighter style, with lovely precision.
Preserved apricot, spice that is almost peppery on the nose, excellent creaminess and succulence with simple, flawless acidic integration.
