    January 22, 2021 - Supper at Franks (Frank's place in Matraville): From half bottle. Apricot over spiced orange marmalade underpinned by a touch of toffee/caramel and a little vanilla. Medium plus intensity acidity, textured grip on the mid palate, orange and apricot are reversed on the palate with candied orange peel. Sweet but not lusciously so. Nice.

    October 3, 2020 - Excellent with age. Not cloyingly sweet at all. Tea notes, tropical fruits, fresh.

    May 19, 2020 - My second bottle and I noted the evolution of the presentation with time. On first opening I was hit by bitter oranges like a classic high quality English marmalade but rising above a quality honey layer. The length is still too short and it lacks complexity but and fine Sauterne

    April 21, 2020 - Gets better with age. Fresh, unctuous and filled with tropical and honeyed fruit. Streak of acidity and a call mo,ex nose. Gd v Sauternes.

    January 28, 2020 - Some 2005 Sauternes: Attractive nose of lemon, honey, some tropical notes, very fresh. Rich palate with more honey, slightly tart botrytis finish. Good balance, but med- length. A good wine, solid and showing well now. Not a lot of complexity yet emerging.
