With more richness than I recall finding here in previous vintages, the wine is loaded with candied apricots, white peach, roasted pineapple, and orange marmelade all liberally drizzled with honey. There is sweetness, paired with racy freshness so everything here is in balance, making this quite a sweet treat. Drink from 2023-2045. 90-92

Vanilla, spiced honey, dried pineapple and apricot start things off. The wine shows a racy side with a lean to its lemon-curd and pineapple core of fruits. I like the lift and energy as it adds a raciness to the fruit. This will work well with spicy and savory courses. Drink from 2023-2035.

Sweet and fresh, lighter, energetic, medium-bodied, honeyed yellow fruit and floral packed wine that is already easy to enjoy. This is a good sweet wine to pair with spicy foods or light white meat or select fish courses.

Apricot, orange, pineapple and honeysuckle scents open the wine. On the palate, the wine is sweet, nutty, with loads of honeyed apricots, vanilla and banana custard. There is weight, and sweetness, but not too much. This can be paired with savory courses quite nicely.

Medium bodied, bright, crisp, fresh style of sweet wine, with a core of sweet pineapple and apricot, coasted with honey. Sweet, but balanced by racy acidity, with hints of candied orange in the finish, this paired perfectly with grilled nectarines, peaches, figs and hazel nuts.

The nose offered light scents of apricot, orange and floral aromas. Medium bodied on the palate, the light, clean finish made me think this would make a nice aperitif. There was not a lot to this light wine. I'd drink it before its 10th birthday.

Light for the vintage, this has a lot of charm. It is perfect to pair with savory dishes or serve as an aperitif, due to its orange, tropical, floral and honeyed tones.
