(2020) With 287g/l of residual sugar this has an opulent toffee, honeycomb and apricot aroma with loads of glycerine. The palate is beautifully honed, a little bit of toast, fabulous opulence in the mouth and fat, with pink grapefruit and orange and lime zestiness. Terrific acid balance and a fabulous sweet and ripe tropical fruit. Price for a half bottle, and stockist quoted at time of review is for the previous vintage.
(2020) With 160g/l of residual sugar, Jules tells me there was a lot of Botrytised fruit in the blend. Nice nose, a touch of Sauvignon Blanc character, herbal, a bit of pungency, then the honey and glycerine, the cold tea aromas, and on the palate full nectarine and orange acidity, tangerine and a delicious touch of creamy vanilla fleshing out the finish. No UK stockists at time of review.
(2015) What a terrfic wine this is, the nose so utterly Riesling with paraffin and beeswax notes, loads of lime and a fine suggestion of ripe and exotic fruit too. There's some honeycomb and orange on the palate, the sweetness is delightful and mouthfilling, and again 10% alcohol and a rapier zip of lime acidity means it finishes as clean as a whistle. Terrific. Price is for a half bottle.
(2011) Made from fruit Kevin discovered hanging late in a vineyard he was driving past, this is only 12.5% ABV, and has 90g/l of residual sugar. Great smoky bacon glimpse on this, some lychee and grapefruity freshness too, but this is about spice and luscious apricot on the palate, a lovely mouth-feel and really fresh and orangy.
