Review and Tasting
Sampled on 15/04/2017
Clear, deep tawny brown.
Pungent. Prune, fig, raisin and sultana with faint coffee and dark chocolate.
Medium sweet (130g sugar p/l) with rich date and raisin fruitiness, dark chocolate and mocha coffee. Faint hint of minty freshness.
Dryer than the rich palate with pleasing long lingering prune, raisin and sultana.
Rich and unctuous with incredible complexity and layers of flavour - prune, fig, raisin and sultana with coffee and dark chocolate.
