Beautiful pale golden colour with hints of orange. A fairly dense nose with a delightful combination of flowers (honeysuckle and acacia) and candied fruit. Starts subtly in the mouth and then intensifies with notes of honey and a long fruity finish with good freshness.

Wine EnthusiastWonderful, evocative orange marmalade and ginger flavors play around this rich wine. Its botrytis dryness doesn't detract from the intense sweetness, ripe apricots, spice and deliciously refreshing acidity. The richness is in the texture, but the ripeness is in the open, generous fruit.

Wine SpectatorAn intense nose, with vanilla, lemon cream, apple tart and honey. Full-bodied, very sweet and powerful, with a fabulous finish. So generous, with layers of delicious, sweet fruit. Best after 2014.
