TASTING NOTES:

Redolent of peach, apricot, redcurrant and white blossom aromas with a touch of lemon. Full-bodied on the palate with good depth and lovely length.

CRITICS REVIEWS:

"This wine is bright, with plenty of acidity. With crisp, citrus fruits dominating, the wine also has a mineral texture that will soften. This ripe wine will be ready from late 2021"

88/100 points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, July 2021

"Open and buttery nose with some nice ripe-apricot character and a hint of muscat (from the muscat clones of chardonnay). Medium to full body with a ripe but properly dry palate and some nice chalkiness at the finish. Drink now."

88/100 points, JamesSuckling.com, July 2021
