Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
Bright golden yellow. Initially a little aromatically compressed due to the heat of 2011, with little noble rot to complicate the passerillage-affected aromas of dried apricot, sweet ginger and peach nectar. Then delicately smoky on the palate (the grapes were slightly grilled on the vine, Burn told me), with vibrant acidity lifting the apricot jam and spicy mango and papaya flavors. Surprisingly, I found this a little short on the finish but Burn believes that it will gain in length over the next year in bottle.
