The nose exhibits aromas of toffee, plum, caramel and exotic spice against the warming scent of vanillin oak.
The palate shows a complex range of flavours including dark cherry, sweet spice, plum and fruitcake. Smooth brandy spirit is also evident. There is a luscious residual sweetness, and oak maturation has added its own magical warming glow.
This wine fills the mouth and envelopes the senses with its rich flavours and long, smooth finish. While sweet, it is not cloying and a balancing acidity leaves the palate fresh and clean.
