More about this wine

A deep amber colour, with a rich nose and a whiff of botrytis.The palate is complex, with caramel, dark honey and some citrus flavours. Very long, with a rich warming finish. Last tried Christmas 2013 - this is still youthful and exactly as described above.

Ben says (September 2017): The notes above could have been written today. It is always an amazing delight when  a wine maintains such youth and acidity through the years. What a lovely long finish!
