Just a small taste today; testing out the durability of a cork over time with the coravin system so will give this a stress-test of 20+ punches over the next few months. The wine is holding up well; a lovely golden hue with a nose of apricots, mandarins, orange zest, and a hint of creme brûlée. Not the most complex of sauternes but it has plenty of richness and sufficient acidity to bind it all together.

Orange, apricot and sweet, candied citrus side of the style, there is a tangy, bright, crisp, sweetness to the honeyed fruit here. Great with stinky blue cheeses.

More chemical, orange, higher in alcohol. 2007 curious grape tasting.
