  1. 91

    Very overt pineapple, toast, butter. Round and rich, full-bodied but fruit and very vanillin oak not quite knit together. Old school style.

  2. 97

    Wow! So ripe, intense and delicious. Super concentrated white nectarine flavours. Also bright, sweet-lemon flavours.

  3. 95

    Attractive ripe peach, apricot musky aromas with vanilla notes. Well concentrated ripe peach, honeycomb flavours, supple textures and underlying vanilla oak. Chalky and sweet fruited at the finish. Crowd pleasing wine.
