93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008

($70) Pale green-yellow. Juicy tropical fruits, especially mango, make an exotic impression on the nose. The mango note is joined by layered flavors of blossom honey, fresh pear and apricot on the palate. The wine's gently extracted, sweet fruit flavors linger impressively on the finish of this complex and delicately structured wine, with a note of green apple emerging on the aftertaste. Drink 2009 to 2017.
