Tasting notes:
'On the understated, elegant side of the variety’s expressiveness, 2018 does have richness of texture & ripe stonefruit notes, along with fine, natural limy acidity. Modest, supportive oaking (20% new). Should benefit from good few years in bottle. Some magnums available.' – Platter's Guide 2020 ed., 4.5* (91/100)
