Expert Reviews

97 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2010

(200 for 375 ml.; 9.5% alcohol, 172 g/l r.s. and 10.4 acidity) Bright medium gold. Very pure, youthful aromas of pineapple, golden raisin and honey. Bracing acidity gives energy and grip to the highly concentrated, razor-sharp flavors of marmalade, apricot and honey. Very sweet and smooth but not glyceral or thick. A fruit bomb and an infant today. This compelling, somewhat high-toned SGN is dense and tactile but almost magically light on its feet. The aftertaste is extremely long and honeyed.
