Rich, ripe, racy, with quite fat, honeyed and baked apple aromas and a nutty background. The palate has delicious, juicy, nectarine flesh richness. This has a chewiness on the mid palate, with a broad texture and delicious tang, the orangy zest of the finish giving lovely succulence and edge. 91/100.
