    June 14, 2016 - A very good reliable staple for drinking up over the next year or so.

    August 29, 2015 - Holding up well. The peachy citrus character remains - as does the mineral core that pulls this off-dry wine together. Excellent accompaniment for a kedgeree-style dinner dish.
    On this showing would expect the wine to remain good for another year or two.

  • Mr. Wine n Soul Likes this wine: 84 points

    January 22, 2015 - There is a decent taste of pear and green apple. The nose is not as impressive as I imagined it would be being that it is an old vine wine.
