Whoa. Never had a wine like this. Chenin Blanc that has turned very dessert like/sweet. The nose on this is fantastic! Honeyed pear, orange marmalade, and something similar to bananas foster. Palate has become viscous but still retains acidity. Shows some overripe pineapple alongside toasted almonds and marzipan. Incredibly unique and complex. Very cool bottle @Mark Flesher .

Half bottle, screw cap. Very fresh, lacking in weight a bit.

Opened for Joan/Brett visit. Excellent dessert wine with honeyed yellow flowers balanced by minerals and acids carrying through to palate and pleasant finish. Yum! Even better nine days later stored in Forestor bottle. Almost explosive tropical fruit notes balanced by excellent acidity and finish. Adding two points. Yum!!

Absolutely lovely. Plush mouthfeel, pure orange marmalade with that bitter kick at the end that comes with all the tasty chewy rind bits. So long. Wonderful.

Amazing wine. Baked yellow apple, honey, pear on the nose with perfect level of acid to balance the sugar. Delectable mouthfeel, velvety.
