This is a full hit of flavour and texture, supple in the palate, creamy, rich, laden with pasty-textured nuttiness, vanilla licks and cinnamon spice. There’s deep pear and ripe apple flavours too, and, importantly, a bright vein of acidity just tingling away inside it all. It feels decadent and yet well-balanced in all its opulence. It’s quite something to sip on now and should yield interesting/good results with modest cellaring. It pushes sweetness/ripeness/hedonism a little out of balance, perhaps, if looking at it more technically, but so many will run to this for its generosity and complex delivery of wine.
