Time of release
Even better than the ’90. Beautiful depth to the colour and palate. Very pungent citrus/lime/floral characters and crisp, “bone” dryness as usual. Drink young and fresh or cellar for a few years. A good one!

Medium deep colour. Fresh orange, mandarin, grapefruit, brassy aromas and flavours, with fine lacy textures, good mid palate richness, and long minerally acidity. Developed and chalky, but still bouyant. Past its best but still drinking. Now - past. 85 points
