    December 25, 2014 - Rich peach, apricot aromas, very opulent on the palate, an almost never ending finish. One of the best white wines I have had this year.

    May 17, 2014 - Color: medium cloudy yellow showing a lot of viscosity with numerous long, shapely legs. Intense bouquet of grapefruit, honeysuckle, peaches, a touch of lime zest and freshly cut garden flowers. Seemed to need a little time after PnP so I let it breathe in the fridge for about 90 minutes. Big, big mouthful of wine that packs both a flavourful and alcoholic punch at 14.7%. Grapefruit, honey and oak noted as well as a little back-end spiciness that was very enticing. FULL bodied, viscous, with good acidity and wonderful structure, this is not for faint-of-heart tasters. Large scaled for sure; think Condrieu on steroids.
