REVIEWS

VINTAGE 2016 - GOLD MEDAL - MEDAILLE D'OR

VINTAGE 2015 - Yellow robe, Licorice, kiwi fruit, green olives show on the nose, with some oaking. The palate is threaded with oak, and a result has a squeezy gras presence, a white fruit jam style. The finish is on honey, a little sweetness, toffee. I find the oak coats its texture a little too mucj. Table wine, with sauced dishes.
