Nose of honey, apricots, caramel. Tropical fruits on the palate; This had intensity too, but when tasted beside the Zilliken, this felt somewhat cloying and clumsier though I believed it'd have been just fine had it been on its own. Together with the Zilliken, these are 2 nice sweets to end the dinner...
From an odd 500ml bottle. Still very young and primary. Tropical fruits, esp mangoes. A bit cloying and heavy like how Sauternes tend to be but still enjoyable at the end of a dinner. For my taste I would prefer this to have more age. Serve this very chilled.
this is at a delicious stage. The initial sweetness is now giving more complexities. Approcahing amber color, the nose is magically complex of wet earth, aged honey, slightly smokey even, and on the palate its texture is velvety, unctuous and ever more inviting to appreciate the caramel, slightly butter/caramel/salt and dried apricot as well. I actually find myself to be quite silly to describe this into a few lines of words... one must simply look out for it and taste it! Cheers,
Initially, the wine was simply sweet and not very interesting. Over two days it opened up into something really very special with nice spice and tropical fruit notes to compliment the dominant caramel-like character.
