Marmalade orange. Tangy fruit, with intense apricot, floral notes. Bracing and pure acidity with incredible length.

Honeyed, intense and layered. Both tropical fruits and citrus, honeycake and marzipan.

Whoa. Never had a wine like this. Chenin Blanc that has turned very dessert like/sweet. The nose on this is fantastic! Honeyed pear, orange marmalade, and something similar to bananas foster. Palate has become viscous but still retains acidity. Shows some overripe pineapple alongside toasted almonds and marzipan. Incredibly unique and complex. Very cool bottle @Mark Flesher .

Layered and complex offering an array of flavours, with dried pineapple and mango, botrytis spice, marzipan and chalky mineral, and balanced to near perfection by brisk acidity. Will easily cruise another 30 years.

Viscous with lemon and yeasty aromas; well structured against firm acidity and rich luscious body

Complete admiration here! Just amazing purity of fruit and great Botrytis spice create magic in this ungorgettable bottle.
