Clear, mid golden amber.
Sultanas and raisins with buttery Eccles cake, vanilla and tropical fruit – papaya. Faint sulphur, aniseed and sooty earthy notes. Even more fruity with water.
Superbly balanced at 49% with strength countered by rich blackened fruit cake. Slight earthiness. Water exposes metallic note and draws out fennel.
Long fruity finish with lingering spice.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
