Bright gold, viscous.
Prickly nose of citrus, mineral oil and wet wool - quite hard to pick much up after the big syrahs.
Full bodied, piercingly sweet and thickly textured. Concentrated flavours of quince jelly, cream and straw. Warm acidity and lots of alcohol.
Gorgeous thick wine with a long, sweet, lingering finish.
Very, very young - a waste now, but hard to resist.
