Holy creamy honeyed semillon ! This lacks the acid I was seeking but still has incredible complexity ... pungent aromas of noble rot with ginger and saffron. Oily texture.

Drinking the 2009 in 2016 and it is very much still alive. A very distinct and deep orange-brown hue. A nutty and smokey flavour, with the nuttiness more pronounced if smoother after being allowed to breathe for 30 minutes, by which time comparisons were being made to a dry fino / manzanilla sherry and as a result this is not a wine for quaffing / drinking a lot of; I also think it a wine that works best with or after food. Not a style of wine that I am that familiar with though I can imagine it is a good example of its kind; not wholly to my current taste however.
