Suduiraut 98 Js 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"One of the outstanding successes of the 2009 vintage, this may surpass the superlative 2007. It has a more understated nose at the moment, but is very well defined with honey, white peach, orange peel and crushed stones. The palate has a viscous entry, is very well balanced, very powerful with great depth and effervescent minerality. Layers of botrytis layer across the mellifluous finish that is beautifully defined and sensuous. Fabulous...97-99" WA 04/10 "This is intense and very rich with a very sweet tropical fruit character from mangos, pineapples, and papayas. Full bodied and lively, with so much going on. I love the intensity to this. The botrytis is almost burning. Barrel sample. 98+" JamesSuckling.com 1/11
