Good typicity, quite concentrated, honeyed, creamy and a hint of butter. Waxy. Ripe peach, nectarine and pineapple. Lovely acacia floral note. Medium bodied, good creamy texture, leesy, stone fruited, and an oaky toasted finish. Very good

Very fruity (pineapple peach). Easy drinking medium length. Acidity bit softened by barrel use.

Evidence of oak barrel fermenting with hints of vanilla, mushroom, smoke. Elsewhere honey, grapefruit, lime. Medium acidity (lower than normal Chenin Blanc). Concentrated wide flavours of tropical fruit, peach, cook apple strudel
