    December 11, 2017 - A good wine. Sweet, syrupy and tropical. If anything a touch cloying for my taste and I’ve got a fairly sweet palate. Very enjoyable though.

    September 24, 2017 - Really liked this! Explosive nose of apricot, peaches, caramelised orange rind and some mango, lots of similar fruit on the palate but it has enough acidity to prevent any cloying texture really impressive length- paired great with a cheese platter

    July 18, 2017 - This is pedro ximenes sweet and truly syrupy in texture. Almost too much actually. Marmalade on the nose and really thick on the palate. But the high acidity and low alcohol makes it work though. But too much for ice cream and strawberries. Pair with a Sacher Torte rather. Dag two: much improved! Acidity has the upper hand over the honey and syrup. Actually quite delish.

    May 30, 2017 - Very sweet but the high acidity helps to make it fresh and balanced. Intense, long, complex with citrus fruits, marmalade and apricots. Great! Will surely improve with time.
