4.5 Stars, 91 points – Wine Orbit, April 2018
"Beautifully styled and composed, the delightfully fragrant bouquet shows white stone fruit, mango, lemon peel and vanilla characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and roundness, enhanced by creamy mouthfeel and silky texture. The wine is elegant and refined, while offering plenty of delectable flavours."

This is what the winemaker says
"A tightly structured elegant palate integrating subtle oak characters, toasted hazelnuts and ripe white peach and nectarine. A bright floral nose with aromatics of ripe stonefruit and hazelnut. Perfect for enjoying now the structure and weight of this wine will gain complexity for the next 4 years. Enjoy with oily seafood such as salmon and tuna or, alternatively, roasted pork and duck. The 2016 growing season was characterised by a long warm and very dry summer with moderate fruit yields and intense flavours."
