ANDREA HARGRAVE, CAREGORY CONTROLLER FOR ALCOHOL AND TOBACCO AT BOOKER
A modern classic! The packaging is discreet and stylish, while the blue label is distinctive and will stand out well. And the pale golden colour of the wine is easily visible.
On the nose, the wine has a pronounced aroma overlaid by a luscious honey. It is quite complex and appealing. The palate is equally well balanced, with great depths of sweetness, richness and complexity. This wine has a firm backbone of acidity supporting it and lifting it on the finish.
However the potential market for dessert wines is regrettably small, although this wine will definitely appeal to the small number of sticky sweet fans. The fact it comes from Australia will also add to the appeal as will the 375ml format. This offering will be most at home on specialist shelves and wine lists.
Score: 14/25
