In my understanding it is a one-off, in 2013, partly for charity, and quite unique in creation.

I was also quite impressed with it currently as tasted at the BFT 2016.

Not to be pedantic, but I assume it was not a "Parker rating" but a Wine Advocate rating and it was reviewed by Mark Squires.

The later of which I trust far more than the former....and which means congratulations are very much in order!

Yes, Andy, you are correct: Mark scored the wine.

And it is a "one off". Could be repeated in the far-far-future...

There was a lot of talking about points. Let us talk about the taste of this fantastic wine. Jamie Goode has posted a video tasting note on YouTube:
