95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

Very bright yellow-gold, a bit less deep than the 2011.  Expressive aromas of tangerine, hazelnutty lees and sexy oak.  The palate boasts great richness and sweetness, with a wonderfully sappy character to its explosive soft citrus and stone fruit flavors.  Comes across as sweeter than the 2011, but harmonious acidity gives it beautiful balance.  The 2010s finished their alcohol fermentations up to 16 months after the vintage, later than the malos, noted Kongsgaard, adding that this has given them a lot of weight.  But this wine finishes bright and very long, with a firm spine of acidity.
