Description

Stunning concentration and power to the nose, which is saturated in lemon curd, oyster shell, dried apple rind, lime cordial and dried cloves. Very long on the full-bodied palate with resounding intensity, but focused, knife-edged acidity that keeps this mineral and taut throughout. Drink now or hold. 97 points, Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com

Strawberry, quince, fig and lime combine for a delectably ripe aromatic display and a lusciously rich yet bright palate performance, to which musky peony perfume and a smoky whiff of black tea adds allure. Hints of cardamom and a kiss of slate contribute to a lingering finish that soothes and envelops while also managing to refresh. 92 points, David Schildknecht, Vinous Media
