"Racy and refined, with lovely tension carrying the singed almond, clove-studded orange peel, bergamot and salted caramel notes along. Echoes of sweetness show amid piercing dryness. Drink now. 198 cases made, 90 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Deep golden brown. Really nutty, walnut skin. Fabulous aroma of burnt toffee, though perhaps not as sweet as that suggests. There's also a delicate smoky character a bit like lapsang but more fruity. Sour, almost bitter, dried apricot and still so full of fruit. Rich, definitely not dry but tastes dryish because of that stunning acidity. A light note of umami on the finish. A meal in itself, rich and refined and infinitely long. Even though there is perceptible sweetness it is overshadowed by the amazing freshness and the complexity of the flavours and endless, bitter-orange finish."
