This vintage has garnered excellent reviews from professional wine critics. The Wine Enthusiast awarded it a score of 93, with Layla Schlack describing it as having "lychee and mead fragrances" that immediately lift out of the glass. She mentioned that the wine is "plush and mouthcoating," dominated by floral lychee flavors and a honey-like texture. Schlack also highlighted the presence of acidity and herbal notes such as dill and baby chive, which help to balance the sweetness of the wine. She concluded by noting its "long, floral finish," suggesting it could serve as a standalone dessert wine, its finish capable of "carrying you through the night."

Decanter magazine was even more generous, awarding the wine a score of 95. In the Decanter World Wine Awards, the review described the wine as having an "intense nose of lychee, rosewater, mango and overripe banana with touches of spice."
