Community Tasting Notes 5

    December 7, 2010 - The colour is deep amber. This would worry me but the vendor had told me about this.
    It's fantastically alive and fresh. Aromas of apricot, marmalade and a tiny hint of marzipan. The palate has the poise of an Olympic athlete. Incredibly clean and clear, creamy fruits. The final coup de grace is a tiny hint of bitterness on the finish.

    March 29, 2010 - It's very hard to score this wine as it's a style that I'm not familiar with. Deep amber colour, verging on orange. The nose had aromas of dried fruit and peel - oranges predominating. The palate had some residual sweetness as you would expect from a demi-sec however the acidity was so severe, I just couldn't drink it so bottle number 1 has gone down the sink. I have 2 bottles left and am thinking of returning them.

    March 18, 2009 - Intensely bright golden orange hue. Nose is very interesting. Strong scents of fresh grapefruit with hints of botrytis, honey and caramel. Weighty on the palate - huge acidity still and moderately sweet with a finishing note which is quite rancio in character and dry. Good length.

    March 7, 2009 - wine-pages.com SuperBOWL 2009 (Glasgow): 12%
    A lovely integrated nose. Creamy lanolin and lemon. Precise palate with lovely concentration. Lots of fresh citrus flavours back up with a fairly rich spine.

    November 9, 2006 - Watson's World Wine Week tasting - 06 (Marriot Hotel, Hong Kong): A little fusty with candied fruit. Balanced acidity cuts the sweetness.
