    A complex Daiuaine, that's for sure. May be a little bit too grassy and winey to reach 90+ point in my book.
    • Nose
      Indeed the old fruits and dryness that Menno detected. Furthermore dusty sweetness. Juniper berries. Sappy oak. Grassy notes as well.
    • Taste
      Clean but very oily and waxy at the same time. Juicy sweet fruitiness of melon and pear. Also lemon and lime at the background. Prunes liquer.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Winey. Liquorice (yeah right CJ!). Lots of ginger and some pepper. Well balanced.

    Very good nose! Lots of dried fruits like prunes and old fruits like overripe oranges. Quite dry in fact.
    Mouth: bold and perfectly balanced. The body is thick and rather complex. Finish is medium long but good.

    Thanks Ras Mazunga for the last bit....
