"The 2002 Vintage of this stellar wine will earn the right to be classed amongst the very greatest of its kind..."
-2005 WINE OF THE YEAR - Jeremy Oliver's 2006
A wine of marvelous richness and unexpected subtlety, this has delicious pear, mineral, gooseberry and lime flavors in profusion, beautifully wrapped in a veil of spicy oak, persisting impressively on the long, long finish. The palate has length of flavor with flowing layers of fruit finishing strong and mouth filling. There is classical sweet malt on the finish with a perceptible flavor of subtle French oak lingering on. This is a very harmonious wine with good ageing potential. Drink now through 2020.
