'Buitenverwachting' means 'Beyond Expectation' and that about sums their Meifort up for my money. It's not often that the price to value ratio is this glaringly positive. We did wonder for half a second whether the price list had a typo, but no, it really is one of those rare and beautiful things: A WINE BARGAIN!

Tasting Notes

Super aromas, herbaceous, blackcurrant, autumn leaves, wood and lifted aromatics. Decant it and the aromatics broaden and the wine softens. Ridiculously good value. It’s drinking now but will also age really well, even under the stairs.
