    May 1, 2019 - My eternal thanks to Mr. Anthony Hamilton Russell of Hamilton Russell Vineyards in S Africa for welcoming our group led by Jean-Noel Formeaux into his home and sharing his valuable time and a great lunch with our group. His family wines are so well made and so enjoyable. His hospitality was second to none. At the end of lunch he introduced the group to an '08 version of this dessert wine. It was a hit, to say the least. A magnum of this beautiful orange muscat wine from Klein Constantia a legendary producer in S Africa. This '07 version is a beautiful candied orange peel, dark caramel and a touch of honey. It is most probably the best dessert wine I've ever had in my life. Yes, better than many a Sauterne. More soul, more life, more length. This has aged beautifully.

    February 9, 2019 - Dark orange to amber. Musty honey nose. Viscous palate of tangerine, golden syrup and poached nectarine with a very long finish up to 45 seconds. Brilliant. 93-94

    January 21, 2019 - Deep yellow colour. Refreshing acidity combines with lovely sweet fruit flavours. Super long too. In a great place right now.

    September 14, 2018 - Dark colour. Smooth and sweet, but good acidity as well. A superb sweet wine. Not clear if there is any benefit to further age from here, but no sign of any decline.

    July 13, 2018 - Un vin d'une grande complexité, tant au nez qu'en bouche. Compote d'abricots mûrs, écorce d'orange confite, épices douces, toute une déclinaison d'arômes si intéressante, sur une robe orange foncée. 14% d'alcool donc pas trop lourd non plus. Un excellent compagnon des fromages, en particulier le gruyère vieilli en grotte.
