Deep colour, Rich farmyard fruits on the nose, still a hint of vanilla, but any greenness has gone. Rich and ripe in the mouth with good balance, long finish. last bottle drank over 3 days with a vacuvin.

Colour is a deep golden yellow showing some age. Ripe tropical fruit, lemon peel, petroleum and honey on the nose. Rich tasting with deep ripe fruit and some minerality, great balance between the acid and fruit. I've drunk 5 bottles so far and it's paired beautifully with spicy food. Delicious.

Amazing I thought this wine was past it, but 2 bottles with friends on Sat and not bad at all, maybe a little jammy but fine with food.

Rich golden colour colour. Some mineral notes and buttery oak, good balance of acidity, oak and fruit. On the palate this follows through witt nicely integrated oak and hints of lemon, apple and pear. First bottle I had a while ago was a big disappointment so I thought this would be over the hill, so this was a great surprise, delicious.

I expected this to be completely gone, and whilst there was little fruit left it was complex and long. Went very well with the Roast Beef.

Had it with some Pata Negra, some olives, Anchovies and Salted Almonds in the hot English summer - I now have 2 more converts to great Sherry - Fantastic!

Sadly this one is now over the hill. Lesson to me to manage my cellar better and with Cellartracker I have no excuse!

Still Leather and bramble on the nose, but not much fruit left. Length was still good, and much enjoyed by my guests with fillet of Beef.

Great for NZ Sauv Blanc, Lots of Citrus fruit and Lychee, and well balanced. I just don't really like NZ SB.

Wine was oxidized, so I switched to Cider. A friend of mine loved it and finsihed the bottle though!
