1976 Vintage

Yellow Box in colour with slight kerosene initially on the nose, then magnificently floral right across the lemon spectrum to custard tart. Semi-sweet on the palette as expected, finishing nicely dry. Lemon soufflé and preserved lemon on the palette with exquisite balance and finish. A pristine bottle, despite a reluctant cork, from a sensational vintage with easily 10-15 ahead of it (98 points 5/11/08).
