89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September 2012
Bright yellow. Tropical fruits and spices with a resiny hint on the nose. Then smooth and almost fat in the mouth, offering expressive flavors of tangerine, mango and cinnamon. Much better material here than in the entry-level wine; finishes nicely ripe and long. This benefits from a bit more residual sugar (4.1 g/l vs. just 0.6 g/l in the entry-level wine), but with almost 8 g/l total acidity the wine comes across as practically dry.
