5/5 STARS - SAM KIM / WINE ORBIT
Fabulously fruited and perfumed, the inviting bouquet shows mango, lychee, rose petal and subtle spice aromas, followed by a succulent palate that's silky and fleshy. It's wonderfully flavoursome with classic varietal flavours, finishing long and delicious. At its best: now to 2023.
