Honey, apricot, and a little peach on the nose and in the mouth. Balanced with enough acid, as not to hang around on the tongue. Delicious. Should last a very long time.

Thick and sweet, yet with lively structure supporting the apricot, honey and mineral flavors in this polished dessert wine.

Terrific. Floral, quince and apple aromas take on honey, peach and mineral accents in the mouth, all displayed on an ethereal, lighter-than-air frame.

Just abouth the perfect dessert wine. Super intense, but so alive and persistent. This has a finish that goes for minutes!
