Wine description

“The palate is unctuous on the entry with honey, molasses, ginger, Mirabelle and kumquat. Against expectations, it does not feel cloying in the mouth, with admirable purity and focus on the cremebrulee-infused finish. Very fine, very sexy and very more-ish.” Neil Martin, 93 points (2013)
