Judges Tasting Notes

What a classy wine. Pale gold with a sexy nose showing the best of both varieties. Lovely aromatic herbs with hints of wax and lovely resinous notes from the use of high quality oak. Palate is rich, oily and sensuous, with ripe white peach, fragrant citrus and well-judged creamy oak, which enhances the fruit. Beautifully structured, drinking now with concentration and complexity to reward aging.
