Clear, barley-sugar pale orange colour; 30% opaque. Very soft nose, lots of marzipan and gentle peach. Lovely impact, sweet and full of burnt sugar and tobacco; thick and concentrated and full of bitter-sweet orange. Big bitter orange-peel flavour of great concentration on the finish, which is of surprising duration for such a lightly coloured wine. 88/100.
