91 Points

Wednesday, January 3, 2018 - PNP: Medium golden and a little cloudy to the eyes. On the nose a lot of juicy, fleshy stone fruits like apricots and a little tropical fruits like mangos. Good spectrum of aromas.

On the palate vibrant acidity with detectable sugar (30% botrytis) to support the fruit flavours which are slightly skewed towards yellow fruits compared to the nose. Full bodied. Nutty, oxidative notes only evident on the medium+ finish but theses are very much under control.

Solid 91 points, a great wine to drink on its own or pair with food.

Rest in fridge for 2 days prior to second tasting: Wine is holding up well on nose and palate but colour is now quite a bit more orange. More oxidative notes (both on nose and palate) that adds to the complexity. I enjoy the 1st day better given its freshness but this is clearly a personal preference.
