“Honeyed richness hits the nose directly.  This is followed by citric freshness and ripe notions of juicy pear. The palate has a touch of residual sweetness but also a wonderful blast of lemony freshness that brightens and enlivens this lovely, developing wine. It is this lemony purity, edged with notions of candle wax and candied zest that gives this such a youthful, lip-smacking and clean finish.  This has only just begun to develop.  It’s ready now but with further potential.  Drink 2017–2035.”
