Nick Bulleid MW's Tasting Note

Background

This fortified wine was made principally from Shiraz grapes, with smaller portions of the Portuguese variety Touriga nacional and Cabernet sauvignon. The wines are matured in large old casks and blended to an average age of about three years to give the ideal balance of fresh fruit and maturity.

Colour

Light to mid red, with garnet on the edge

Nose

Red plum, slight nuttiness and spices from maturation

Structure/Palate

Sweet red fruits, a soft balance and a fine brush of tannin. Nicely balanced sweetness.

This wine is delicious with rich, sticky desserts or soft cheeses. It’s fully ready to drink and will not mature further in bottle.
