Winemaker Notes

The autumn/winter period of 2005-2006 was exceptionally dry, which was then compensated for by heavy rain during March. There was fine weather and warm temperatures from April to July; August was cooler but the sun returned at the beginning of September to complete the ripening process. Beautiful pale golden color with hints of orange. A fairly dense nose with a delightful combination of flowers, honeysuckle and acacia and candied fruit. Starts subtly in the mouth and then intensifies with notes of honey and a long fruity finish with good freshness.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Wonderful, evocative orange marmalade and ginger flavours play around this rich wine. Its botrytis dryness doesn’t detract from the intense sweetness, ripe apricots, spice and deliciously refreshing acidity. The richness is in the texture, but the ripeness is in the open, generous fruit.

93 Points - Wine Spectator

An intense nose, with vanilla, lemon cream, apple tart and honey. Full-bodied, very sweet and powerful, with a fabulous finish. So generous, with layers of delicious, sweet fruit.
