Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - The nose of this wine has clean aromas of vanilla, apricots, and butterscotch with a hint of mango skin. Full bodied on the palate, it carries flavors of pineapple, kiwi, ripe apple, and pear with a backbone of oakiness. The soft finish expresses flinty minerality. (Jun 2016)
There are aromas of apple, pear, fresh fruit, pineapple, vanilla, slight butterscotch, toasted oak and a little minerality in the glass. The 2013 has good fruit and palate weight with a rich mouth-feel. There are tropical flavors of apple, pear, citrus, peach and apricot in the glass with nice balance and a very long aftertaste.
