91 | Sweet-fruit aromatics. The palate is quite savoury and there is low fruit on the close.

91 | A restrained textural wine. Fruit sits in the citrus spectrum ,oak v subtle but surprisingly lengthy. Still seems unresolved, would have expected a little bottle development by now?

88 | A leaner, greener style. Tense, taut, ageing slowly. Just a wee bit ungenerous?

87 | lees mineral, pulled to one direction and ends with a smudged finish, lacks purity and freshness
