The finish, redolent of espresso, ensures this sipper surprises through and through. (Apr 2016)
Wine Enthusiast 93 points - From the Isle of Jura comes this lively number, layered with caramel and orange peel. On the palate, it dries out to a spicy, citrusy finish reminiscent of tea and cigar box. Soft in feel. (Dec 2013)
