Tasting Notes / Comments:

Spectacular nose dominated by nectarine, white peach and apricot with hints of ginger. Full and concentrated palate.
Oddbins (2000 vintage)

This wine created quite a bit of controversy at a recent tasting. Some enjoyed its strong honey nose, golden yellow colour. It's taste full and intense with apricots and a hint of rubber in the after taste. It was the strength and after taste that some found less to thier liking.
The reviewer enjoyed the distinctive taste of a wine that stood out amongst twelve different white wines.
