4.5/5 STARS - SAM KIM / WINE ORBIT
Fabulously ripe and fragrant, the wine shows apricot, rockmelon, feijoa and lemon zest aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate displaying excellent fruit intensity and lingering persistency. It's flavoursome and immediately appealing. At its best: now to 2023.
