It's always a cliché to compare wine to the nectar of the gods but there's little that comes closer than this. It's decadently sweet, offering layer upon layer of unctuous honey and stone-fruit nectar, yet exhilarating, fine and filigreed. The finish is endless and breathtaking. Delicious now but will hold for decades to come.
