Other Reviews....
Cask sample. Ripe, very pure, super-intense lemon. On the palate, pure, super-concentrated apricot. Sweet but incredibly light on its feet. Very Kirchspiel, with a mineral/stony foundation almost completely overwhelmed by the fruit now. Needs time to become more complex. Mouth-watering apricot finish, with depth and length but no excess weight. Intensely primary. Stay away for 10 years at least. At the moment it seems almost too sweet even though it has the acidity to balance.
18.5/20 points
