Intense tawny-brown core with a broad brick coloured rim. The harmonious and complex nose has a rich base of molasses and butterscotch aroma mingled with notes of plum and raisin, hints of black tea leaf and cigar box and fleeting floral scents. The first impression on the palate is of smoothness and density but the wine develops an attractive lightness on the mid-palate with a lively acidity and juicy plum flavours. On the finish, a surge of opulent mellow flavour is balanced by an attractive dryness. A beautifully balanced and seductive wine, at the perfect point of maturity.
