Quite classy, apricot/almond marzipan bot, lemon citrus, toast. Similar to nose, lemon/citrus/marzipan, zingy & moreish ? long. Food compliments very well, adding flavour length & texture.

An attractive wine with aromas of crystallised orange and honey and once again with Semillon the match seems to make it both richer and fresher.

Bright yellow, slight gold hints. Woodsy, complex honeyed aromas, some caramel overtones. High sweetness, well-structured palate. Soft acidity and good length. Balanced alcohol at the finish. With food: works quite well with the food ? good flavour integration and structure/sweetness settle down well.

A very floral sweet blossom aroma following through to the palate. An elegance on the palate which is not to cloying. Not a great match with the dish as the wine comes through rather hard on the finish.

Light amber gold. Honeyed biscuit nose ? concentrated, intense, dried apricot. Med bodied, sweet, honeyed peach, high acid, balanced, fairly straightforward. Sweet, honeyed biscuit finish. Long.

Very brig, light amber colour. Really attractive primary fruit aromas complexed with oak and almond notes. The palate has ripe citrus and almond flavours with a exceptionally long finish. The wonderfully complex characters in the wine pair well with subtly flavourred desserts.
