Review

Deep yellow but less brown than the 1998. Captivating aromas and flavors of pineapple, ripe peach, musky toffee and honey. Rich and deep on the palate; in a distinctly sweet style, but with lovely balancing acidity and energy. Finishes quite savory and long, with a repeating toffee note. This wine was bottled with four grams per liter of residual sugar owing to a stuck fermentation.
