pale robe; pear, white fruits aroma, with the fragrance of flowers and honey also. The palate also starts on a honeycomb note, its texture is gracious, has a quite roundness, and persists steadily. The oak lends a vanilla influence. Decant this – it needs waking up. Good with dishes such as chicken. To 2014. Dec 2008

2006 ()

pale yellow; candy, rather falsely scented nose – shows baked tart, and despite some clarity late on, is subdued. The palate starts mildly – its flavour is indeterminate, rather drawn tight. It gains some kick – there is some gras here, but it just isn`t out and about today. Can evolve, try from late 2008. To 2012. Jan 2008


honey, soft aromas; Live start, then tightens. Dry wine, leave and drink when 5-years plus. Length OK. To 2012-13
