    Bob Campbell of Real Review gave this wine 92 points and 4 stars.

    Light, fresh and moderately sweet dessert wine, with a mix of ripe tropical fruit and tree fruit varietal flavours together with honey from botrytis. A nicely balanced wine, with a backbone of fruity acidity.

A fantastic growing season with warm mid-summer temperatures enabled perfect flavor development for this opulent wine. Late season heavy dews created enough moisture for the development of noble rot while the warm clear days allowed the fruit to dehydrate effortlessly.

The fruit was hand harvested in mid-May, de-stemmed, crushed and fermented at cool temperatures for several weeks. The ferments were monitored carefully to achieve a perfect balance between the sugar and acid to make this wine deliciously moreish.
