Awards and/or Press Quotes
Jancis Robinson 16.5/20 'Bright, zesty aroma of grapefruit and orange pith, maybe even quince. Aromatic. Firm, dense and still very fresh. Lovely fruit and quite full in the mouth even with all that freshness. Long finish, maybe not bone dry? Either that or the fruit was very ripe.'
