Reviews & Awards
International Wine Challenge 2007
Fresh, crisp acid. Beautifully mouth filling and very well integrated. Long, fresh finish.
Wine International, June 2007
International Wine Challenge 2004
“Amazingly complex and harmonious, with orange rind, nuts and spice, exotic sandalwood
and hints of marzipan. Its many layers are amplified in intensity by the warming alcohol
and lifted acidity.”
Wine International, October 2004

A classic 20-year-old, combining good fruit with aromatics of coffee, mint and plum jam.
It’s in perfect balance; great structure
