Jancisrobinson.com, 2023, 17: "Popcorn and smoky buttered corn-cob aromas. Silky fruit, smoky threads, delicately salty acidity. A play of yuzu-citrus crystalline angles and yellow-mirabelle-plum fleshiness. There is a little walnut tucked into the edges and the fragrance of lemongrass fills the finish. Refined and shapely." Wine Merchant Top 100 2023, Highly Commended.
