Dave Hughes – Internationally Acclaimed Wine Writer :
Turkish delight-like nose mingles with honeysuckle and jasmine. Added complexity from some botrytis. Slow flow across the palate with tropical fruit salad in the mouth. Rich and full mouth feel with luscious, yet balanced finish with enough zesty acid to make whole mouth appear smooth and rounded rather than particularly sweet. Delicious!
