Cork was soaked and split in 2. Deep golden hue. Initial impressions were not encouraging - a dusty, almost maderised aroma. But underneath, there was some life here. With time in the glass, it did open out a little more, offering cumquat, apricot and honey flavours. There were still acids present which kept the width of the palate in check. It was a reasonable experience with what is a 48 year old.
