Try to climb out if you can, but I don't want to! Although this is almost 20 years old there's a kaleidoscope of dried fruit aromas which also make this one of the world's most amazing dry white wines.

(94-95 points) I last tasted this in June 2016, when I was, exceptionally, given an opportunity to sample from tank, into which the wine had recently been racked in preparation for an end-of-month bottling. The nose is head-turningly complex, offering black tea, coriander seed, spruce resin, sea breeze, sweat, and piquantly pit-inflected white peach in distilled as well as fresh form. A silken and expansive yet buoyant palate is correspondingly multifaceted and displays vividly sappy concentration of peach and lemon. The prodigious finish delivers mouthwatering savor of crustacean shell reduction with cut and tang of lemon zest and peach skin that may surprise you from a 15-year-old wine, and the smoky black tea inflections are especially persistent. - David Schildknecht
