1/2 bottle. Toasted honeycomb, jasmine tea, caramel, overly poached pear, balancing acid and apricot jam on the finish. Yum!

Wifey detected aging, I didn’t. However, still a superb effort. Liquid candy augmented by herb notes. Pure decadence.

Vintage 2001 / I was surprised by the deep brown colour... as I drunk 2009 only a few months back with a nice golden colour. Will it be okay? I thought. Completely wrong. As the wine appears to be excellent. Smell with very prominent apricot. Great balance with subdued sweetness. I enjoyed this enormously. At restaurant Dôme in Anvers/Antwerpen.

A brilliant example of a dessert wine. Not heavy or coying, just excellent. Compliments my wife’s Twix bar dessert perfectly. God bless the convicts 😃

10.5% alc.

Not a big fan of the ridiculous US Government Warning but you just have to love the Australian way of consumer information:
Preservative (220) added
Anti-oxidant (300) added
Approx 3.1 standard drinks.

See that tells me everything I want to know....🙄..🤔

Honey, apricot, and minerality. On the palate M+ acidity and balance. Orange zest, lemon and lime and nuts. Rich but not viscous. Beautifully balanced.
