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.

Regal, beguiling, yet not overdone. Deep gold color, beautiful honey, spice, praline, yellow apples, ginger notes, not overly sweet, medium acidity, intense, long finish. Yum!

Baking spices, pure fruit tones, brightness, amazing finish. Apricots, ripe apples and pears, spring blossoms. Complex in every way. Wow.

Very interesting. On the nose nectar, honeysuckle, baking spice, baked apple and cider. Palate is complex with pineapple, cider, nuttiness, spices, pralines. Acidity comes in to keep it fresh, and the finish sails on.
