£48.26 -"Elegant and crisp, with a sweet end, this is a strong on nutty flavors and beautifully balanced. As it pulls itself together after opening, it delivers a burst of acidity and a whiff of brandy, becoming a bit more nuanced and interesting. This is not a blockbuster, rather one aimed more at those who appreciate the elegance and refreshing acidity, but it gradually grew on me and stayed in balance. It is a charming youngster. 89 points." From: Mark Squires, eRobert Parker, December 2012;

A very wet winter motivated vines to produce quantities well above average. A dry September then brought to the wine aroma and balance. Totally destemmed grapes followed by a slow fermentation with temperature control up to 27ºC degrees. Not filtered. Last bottling was in November 2013.
