NV Taylor Chip Dry white

Post by AHB » 23:59 Sat 27 Jun 2015

Slightly pink in colour. Soft flavours on the palate with a slight bitterness and a goodly amount of tropical fruit. Gentle persistence on the finish. Light but by no means delicate and with a finish that fades and then unexpectedly comes back with a thump. 83/100. May 2015.

A surprise to see a TN of this humble wine. And quite a high score, considering.

Seems accurate to me, though considering the normal 3-pt gap between my scores and Alex's, it does seem a bit generous. Something around 83 is about where I'd score it.

I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable this was. Perhaps I was generous, or perhaps my palate is getting more adventurous.
