Honeysuckle and poached pears on the nose, with a lovely full mouthfeel of fresh pear and floral notes. There is some sweetness but it isn’t dominant, and the palate finishes crisp and clean, prompting you to enjoy another glass.
5 Stars / 93 points, Wine Orbit: “This is delectably expressed, showing apricot, fresh pear, honeydew melon and floral characters on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent fruit weight and silky mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by bright acidity, offering terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2023.” Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2020.
