Hugely aromatic with lots of pineapple and mango fruit layered over a base of fine, toasty and allspice laced oak. This start out on the palate with fairly big power, then broadens on the palate in a lush, creamy style. The flavors are rich with vanilla, mango and melon, along with some creamy pineapple fruit towards the back of the palate. The acid and a touch of minerality emerges on the moderately long finish which shows a dusty edge and reveals more subtle green apple peel and lime pith flavors. This is a very ripe flavor profile, and while the texture remains attractively fresh if broad it’s blend of tropical fruit and vanilla spice doesn’t work for me. 86pts

Volles, blasses Strohgelb, weiches, frisches Aroma von reifen Pfirsichen, tropischen Früchten sowie Zitrusfrüchten. Ein trockener, milder Wein mit einem langanhaltenden Abgang.

Starts out a bit short and flat, with a bouquet housing basic Chardonnay aromas of pear, apple and oak. The palate is more or less similar, with apple and melon flavors spreading wide across the mouth. But where?s the precision and zest? Those key qualities, which we?ve previously lauded in this wine, are not entirely on vacation but they?re not fully evident either.

Elegante Aromen von Schokolade, Zigarren, Kaffee mit einem Anflug von Vanille und Karamellbonbon. Voluminös am Gaumen mit mittlerem Körper. Weicher und langanhaltender Abgang.

Ein frischer, junger und fruchtiger Wein. Aromen von Erdbeeren, leichte florale Noten, vor allem Rosen sowie Orangenschalen. Im Gaumen entfalten sich reiche Fruchtaromen mit einem wunderbar langen Abgang.

Dichtes, dunkles Beerenrot mit schwarzen Reflexen, elegante Aromen von Schokolade, Zigarren und Kaffe mit einem Anflug von Vanille und Karamellbonbon. Voluminös am Gaumen mit mittlerem Körper. Weicher und langanhaltender Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes sourced from Casablanca Valley. The wine remains in its original cask for one year using a monthly batonage to enhance buttery flavors and complexity that emphasizes the union of refined flavors of tropical fruit and aromas.
