"Tasted single blind at Southwold. This is a little blowsy on the nose at first, presence of warm alcohol, honeyed fruit, lanolin and yellow flowers. It needs to calm down because the palate exudes class. Beautifully balanced, good minerality, fine tension with touches of acacia honey, citrus lemon, Satsuma and quince towards the finish. Very well defined but needs time to be tamed. Drink 2012-2040."
