Deep golden colour. Better on bouquet than palate. A nose of pineapple and other exotic fruit, baking spices, apricot, honey and golden syrup, suggesting high residual sugar (in fact, 24 grams per litre). Flavours of peaches, pears and apricots, fairly straightforward and not complex. Also, slightly flabby, lacking a bit of focus, minerality and acidity, which leaves the residual sugar too prominent. Unctuous and glycerol with good fruit weight and nice mouthfeel. Overall, however, a pass for me. Update: after a day in the fridge the last glass of this wine was far better, more integrated. Upgraded from 88 to 89.
Intense deep golden yellow color. Flower petals and dried apricot on the nose. Full bodied and rich, the floral elements echoed on the palate along with peach and spiced apricot cake flavors. Interesting but a bit cloying.
