    May 13, 2018 - Still great drinking. Petrol, wax, herbs, bitter citrus, mildly oxidative. Held up well to a Sicilian style fish in spicy tomato sauce.

    January 22, 2017 - Beautiful white pepper, oxidized fruit, lemon oil and minerally earth on the nose. Just love sticking my nose in the glass. Nice waxy texture with oxidized pine tar and a riot of spicy fruit and pepper on the palate.
    Excellent and one of the great white wine bargains in the world.

    December 31, 2016 - Lots of petrol when first opened, although this fades a bit. Pear, oily/waxy, drinks well now. Seems like it is time to be drinking these, although I don't see it fading any time soon.
