James Suckling, 97 Points 

"Sweet berries, cherries, cedar and dried flowers on the nose. Some lemon and lime zest, too! Medium-to full-bodied with tight, integrated tannins that show wonderful length and reserve. So fresh and vivid. Lots of energy. A wonderful, classic wine. Drink or hold." 

Vinous, 95 Points 

"Limpid gold.  Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of dried orchard and pit fruits, brown butter, coconut, beeswax, chamomile and lemon pith are sharpened by a suggestion of candied ginger.  Deeply concentrated pear skin, peach pit, orange marmalade, vanilla and toasted nut flavors pick up a smoky topknot as the wine opens up.  There’s a lot here that reminds me of an aged Sauternes, but the acidity is fresh, giving the wine an intriguing push-pull experience of decadence and vibrancy.  Finishes very long, chewy and precise, showing firm minerality and spicy cut and a touch of saltiness." 

Decanter, 92 Points 

"Pale gold, with a hint of luminosity, then a nose which recalls sourdough, quince and lanolin; gorse, fennel and a hint of kumquat; something reminiscent of Hunter Valley Sémillon, the toasty richness, maybe, but in this instance, there is more depth; intimations of matted texture and cerebral challenge. All duly confirmed on the palate, tangerine and tarte tatin, almonds and white pepper; slices of kumquat and Mirabelle plum; a briny grip, but the brine of a warm embracing ocean of pleasure." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
