A nutty, sweet bouquet, slightly reminiscent of toasted walnuts, caramel and raison. Complex and balanced palate of orange, roasted nuts, clove, sweet spices but with rich mouthfeel and expression. The taste lingers with intensity and satisfaction, dry but with subtle almond notes on the finish.

Winemaking

Once fortified to 15% abv the wine is aged in 500 litre American Oak barrels for three years. A layer of yeast 'flor' remains on the surface facilitating biological ageing. Then the second fortification to 18% abv kills the flor allowing a second period of ageing. This time the ageing is oxidative & lasts for over 4 years, resulting in exceptional nutty, raison & dried fruit notes in the wine.
