Tasting this alongside the 2013 vintage, and it’s great to see vineyard/house style thrown up against vintage character. Love both of them. Terrific wines.
Rich nectarine and lime with flowers, oatmeal, sandalwood and spice – a musky exotic perfume – spent matchsticks cast aside. Full flavoured with gloss and savoury cashew richness, but tight limey acidity courses through its veins to thrilling effect, and the flint and quartz plays out on a superb long and gently honeyed finish. It responds beautifully to air, though it tastes so good it’s a battle keeping it in the glass long enough. What a wine! 96 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
