    October 5, 2019 - Very rich, slightly crisp, peaches, aromatic herby underneath and in finish. Lots of layers. Aged well.

    December 1, 2017 - Pale gold. A somewhat reserved, though notably elegant nose offers notes bruised pear, honey, sage, trampled flowers, saffron, toasted cashew, and crushed stone minerality. Just off-dry on the palate, with nearly high acidity balancing flavors of oxidized apples, flowers and minerals. Not particularly effusive or vivacious, there's still plenty left here for those who like aged Chenin. That said, I'd drink now, not later.

    September 21, 2010 - Improves with age. Floral nose. Nice blend of mineral and citrus (lime & nectarine) honey. Finishes smoother than a sav blanc.

    June 27, 2009 - good summer wine, light and fruity, soft finish. Would buy again.
