The pale to medium lemon-gold colored 2018 Suduiraut comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of candied peel, warm pineapple, guava and key lime pie with hints of orange marmalade and beeswax. The palate is packed with power and richness, with mouth-coating tropical fruits and a long earth-laced finish.

Intense aromas of dried mushrooms, dried apricots, hazelnuts and citrus skin. Medium to full body with density and beauty. Flows across the palate with beauty and interest. I like the salted caramel and dried fruit at the finish. Drink or hold.

Not the easiest vintage for Suduiraut, with a final yield of 5hl/ha in 2018, of which 40% went into the grand vin. It is rich and succulent, with a sense of confident spice. One for lovers of opulent Sauternes. Tasted twice; issues with first bottle. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034
