This has a light green-gold colour and a full bouquet of freesias, white peaches, ripe pears and spices including star anise. The wine has a residual sugar of over 60g/L but the palate is full - even creamy rather than obviously sweet, tasting of apricots and very ripe pears - almost a fruit salad conserve, with cloves, fruitcake spices and a mineral finish with a very long aftertaste. These wines tend to benefit greatly from the first 1-2 years in the bottle and although some 'Selections' can be quite long-lived, my preference is to drink them at around 3-5 years when they still have some of their bright primary fruit.
