35 months in barrel. Note: from 80+ year old vines planted in soils with a high proportion of schist Incredibly fine but flavoursome with crystalline, ripe orchard fruits of pear, pound pear, golden apple, quince, all with an overriding combination of sweet spice and sea spray. There is a cooling sensation that builds purity through the overtly dry extract dominant palate. So very mineral and structured. Jono Hersey, FWC Tasting note: There is plenty of phenolic character (think olive oil nuances) to the notably ripe aromas of yellow-fleshed fruit, and in particular, apricot and peach, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Once again there is excellent size, weight and richness to the large-scaled flavors that exude evident minerality on the firm, long and powerful finish. This won't win any accolades for finesse or refinement, but it is undoubtedly impressive in its imposing fashion. 93 Points. Outstanding Allen Meadows, Burghound
