Note 1 See score in brackets for potential (if any). Current rating at time of tasting.
14ct gold colour. Buttery, yeasty nose. Smooth on the attack. Vintage qualities - honey, toffee, apple mixed with citrus. Lots of complexity - strawberries, lichee and minerality in abundance. Deep and complex. Powerful and meaty this a blockbuster. Characterful sharpness.
