    October 6, 2017 - Six years on since I last drunk this it's still a hugely impressive wine. Relatively dark amber in the glass the nose is of hugely concentrated barley sugar. Incredible sweetness on the palate (350g/l RS) but there is good acidity here, though maybe a little less obvious than previously. Maybe the balance is just tipping towards the sugar now. Incredibly long and intense. *****

    September 17, 2015 - Deep raisin nose, well balanced acid so very high sugar content is not cloying.

    November 30, 2013 - The Twelveth Annual Stonefields Dinner (Guelph, ON): Nose of orange candy, citrus peel oils, and some noted volatility no doubt due to drying on straw mats. Palate is of candied orange and lemon drops. Nicely done for this style.

    November 30, 2013 - The Twelfth Annual Stonefields Dinner (Guelph, ON, Canada): This is pure tangerine…..
    This jumps out of the glass and is so inviting on the nose with its pure fruit and lush character.
    The palate shows tangerine, orange, lemon, citrus peel, honey and marzipan with a long finish
