Press/Review: “This is an LOL wine (take your pick between laugh-out-loud and lots of love) – just because the apricot and orange aromas and flavours are so wonderfully intense and extreme they provoke simple, spontaneous joy. It’s the sort of wine that will grab your attention and brighten your day thanks to its sweetly indulgent, pure and persistent flavours and lightly viscous texture, balanced by just enough fresh acidity. ” Julia Harding MW 2017 Jancis Robinson Purple Pages
