LCBO Vintages Classics Release

 

“Bright gold. Highly complex nose: minerality with stewed white fruits and fresh mushroom. Nicely ripe palate showing impeccably balanced crispness and generous substance, power and finesse, balance and velvety texture.”

92 points, Gilbert & Gaillard, April 2014

 

“Just beginning to soften, this is turning into a finely crafted, fruity wine with a tense, mineral structure. It is complex, ripe, packed with apples and with acidity. Taut, it needs to develop further.”

“Features relatively open notes of yellow applle, quince and fresh ginger up front, but picks up a racier mineral edge through the finish, ending with a coiled feel. Needs just a touch more cellaring for maximum effect. Best from 2016 throught 2018. “
