"93 pts ... The 2013 Palladius comes in at 13.7% alcohol, one of the lowest for this label. It has a refined bouquet of dried honey, fern, smoked walnut and damp earth all very well defined. The palate is very well balanced with wonderful poise, a strong marine influence with a dash of white pepper and nutmeg towards the long and sustained finish. Another superb Palladius. Drink 2016 - 2026."
