A truly eclectic wine here and one of real interest. There isn’t a huge amount of Timorasso about but I implore you to try it. Pear drops, white flowers and a smokiness are found on the nose making this very unique, whilst the palate sings with bright citrus fruit.
Jancis Robinson: “I absolutely loved this white wine and found more aromas and flavours, and more pleasure, as I drank it over the course of a few days…. Very inviting spiced honeyed nose and some creamy, lightly spiced aromas…. Nutty, citrus, with just discernible floral and apricot notes. Full of flavour and yet restraint, cool and fresh and lingeringly elegant and aromatic…. As the week went by, I found even more flavours emerging – white flowers, ginger, mineral and still nutty. I also noted a firmness in the texture but it was still alluringly creamy. Long, powerful and sophisticated with a gently floral finish."
