On the orange range of the fruit side, with tropical nuances, there is ample honey and vanilla as well as mango and papaya. Sweet, with a jolt of overripe pineapple and marmalade in the finish, you can enjoy this young, or age it for more nuances.

White peach, tropical fruits, vanilla, pineapple, apricot, nut and honey aromas are all over the place here. The wine has concentration, sweetness and ripe fruit, but what makes everything work is the racy acidity giving this wine lift and energy. It is effortless to drink. It's quite primary at the moment. If you wait about a decade, this should be a gem.

This has really stepped up its game. The wine feels like an entire pineapple, slathered with honey and vanilla has been placed into a single glass of wine. Intensely concentrated, lush, fresh and sweet, this is really mouth coating, but in a good way.

Interestingly, while some vintages of this wine are produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2010 was made from an even blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon giving the wine a lighter mouth feeling than many previous vintages. That being said, this is still incredibly rich, dense and honeyed, but with more freshness in the fruit.

Dark gold in color, the wine is incredibly sweet, concentrated and rich. You can feel the levels of sugar and intensity. The wine is massive, packed with layers of ripe, tropical, honeyed fruits. But with this much sugar, it needed more acidity to balance the wine and give it lift as the wine was close to the corner of cloying and syrupy. Note, I said almost, there is a lot to like enjoy and taste in this intense, rich wine.

This is so rich and concentrated, it is difficult to resist the urge to taste the wine with a spoon! The incredible power and length, matched with intensity is something to experience. The melange of tropical fruits seem to be drenched in honey. Still, I wish there was a tad more acidity to further enhance the vibrancy in the finish.

The wine was deep copper with orange in color. The nose offered caramel, coffee, orange, floral, cocoa and apricot scents. Better in the nose than on the palate, the wine was light, short and acidic in the mouth. Still, it is always fascinating to taste war year wines. It allows time for reflection knowing World War 2 was taking place and the people not able to serve were left behind and forced to produce the wine.
