Sampled on 06/06/2011
Deep amber with golds and hints of ruby.
Deep, rich and warm. Fades to linseed oil and macadamia nut finishing with a touch of bramley apple (cooked in a pie).
Like the nose, the palate has a big flavour with rich, warm fruits, dark chocolate with bitter orange peel (slight flint going to sulphur?) and green olive notes.
Flavours swing from sweet to dry and back to sweet.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
