NOSE: coconut cream, custard, nilla wafers, grilled pineapple, a little mango. Smells like typical aged Suduiraut!
TASTE: the vanilla cookie is strong with this one - plus tres leches. 93.
Sauternes is one of my preferred pairings with pumpkin pie and whipped cream. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! — 11 days ago
This is the way I like NZ sauvignon blancs to taste: like pineapple! — 4 months ago
Closed and shy at the moment. Everything on 1 but all the hallmarks are there. The pear and cut lime, and pineapple twist that says Leeuwin/gingin. — 5 months ago
A blend of a tad more Chardonnay than Pinot Noir, nice lemon yellow color with golden edges, aromas of fruit, spice and brioche notes, nice mousse and bubble flow. On the palate flavors of fresh fruit, peaches, pineapple and ripe lemon with hints of toasted nuts and citrus zest. Long finish ending with rich briny yeasty mineral character. Drinks well now but will go another 10+ years! — 3 months ago
Very elegant with Medium intensity aromas and flavors of apple, pineapple, apricot, white peach, nectarine, elderflower, brioche, clove, vanilla and smoke.
Hint of dried apricot and honey.
Very good quality, balancing aromatics with a hint of oak. Interesting style with batonnage, 18% new French oak — 4 months ago
Magnum. Call it like you see it, drink it like you taste it; from a bad vintage or that is a vintage of a lot of rain at harvest. Jesus this was good. Perfect balance of acidity, toast, Carmel-curd. Roasted pineapple. This was a beautiful wine that showed zero age after 12yr, but also perfectly evolved. Loved. — 4 months ago
Double decant and pour. A wondrous lite golden straw color. On the nose: a subdued nose of pear, pineapple, oyster shells, pine, nutty vanilla. Taste: A chalky, oily, layered wine with lemon-lime, apple, limestone, peach, and a mineral dried coconut medium plus finish. YUM!! — 7 months ago
