1992, great acidity and hint blue and plum fruit. Brick like mineral finish, almost reminded me of an Italian wine with comparable age. Nice one here, fun

Bought this on release and cellared since. This is showing well with no urgency to open now. I’ve always been a fan of the Backus, but this is certainly a good value if you have patience and cellar space.
