Almond-meal combines with opulent ripe fruit. Tight and focussed on the mid palate with impressive weight. Development has brought ripeness to the fore, showcasing tropical fruits on the mid palate. Rich viscosity dominates the finish.

Tasting Date: 15 November 2013

Bold and expressive. Rich, ripe summer fruits are neatly balanced by mineral intensity. A mid palate showcasing exuberant viscosity is kept in check by the intensity of fresh fruit. Surprisingly youthful, with plenty of life remaining.

Tasting Date: 11 November 2008

Fruit compote of melons, rich ripe fruits, and pink grapefruit... with a splash of cream. A rich and viscous wine with great depth and intensity. Great clarity and balance without any obvious "fatness". Overall this is a structured wine which is still tightly bound. Well poised and will continue to shine into the future.
