Brilliant pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Aromas of nectarine and pear mix with hints of bees wax, faint grapefruit and gun flint. Nicely rounded, almost gently creamy in its texture, the palate features generous ripe nectarine and pear fruits over notions of dried honey, nougat and roasted almond. Finishes dry with good freshness and a cream tinged medium length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews…
Honeysuckle, peach, lactose and cream flavours push through the palate in convincing style. It’s riddled with those lactose/condensed milk characters so your enjoyment of this wine will depend highly on your preferences. It feels just slightly disjointed but in general this is pretty good.
