Gorgeous wine.  It is sweet of course, but not as sweet as expected.   Golden in color.  The nose is pretty with just the slightest touch of petrol.  Also lots of minerality, wet stones and slight apricot.  Full bodied.  Viscous.  Enough acidity but a bit more to counter the sweet would be nice.  Still, it is a very nice wine.  Went well with Halloumi cheese.  Drinking well now, but it has two or three decades of life left.
