Wine expert Jeff Jenssen wrote the review for this amazing wine, read and don’t be surprised if mouthwatering begins immediately: “This golden-colored wine has enticing aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, caramel and pineapple upside-down cake. In the mouth, there are great flavors of dried apricot, mango, honeycomb and marzipan candies. It has elegant heft on the palate and balanced acidity in the finish. Enjoy now or keep in your cellar for another decade or so.” If you want to buy the wine in the USA, click on the importer’s page:
