Overview

Although some of the fruit elements have drifted into the background, the wine is now showing incredibly well developed and surprisingly for a wine of this age, has little vegetal of fungal characters on either the nose or palate. Instead it is offering more delicate notes of toasted almonds and a zingy citrus. The 13.5% abv feels more like a 14.5% now with pleasant weight and length. Excellent drinking now but needs to be appreciated probably over the coming 12 months - Tasted Oct 18 MD
