"Silky and fresh-tasting for a dessert wine, with well-cut minerality through the notes of white raisin, dried pineapple and papaya. Features a long, well-defined finish. Drink now through 2027. 500 cases imported."

"The wine offers a very clear, precise, fresh, intense and really distinctive bouquet with aromas of stewed quinces and lemons. On the palate, this is a highly delicate and perfectly balanced TBA with great finesse and purity (despite its high concentration). The acidity is very fine and persistently salty, and if there are any tannins, these are very fine too. A great elegant, finessed, beautifully balanced TBA."
