"A wine of structural mettle and fealty to the region. The mantle of ageability, so integral to variety and region, is intact. A dichotomous mesh of balletic finesse and body, with cumquat marmalade, quince, lemon balm and buttered toast riffs of semillon breaching middle age, rather than senility. Exceptional." – Ned Goodwin MW
