This wine is made only when growing conditions are ideal. It is made in a vintage port style, with a point of distinction.
Stylistically the bouquet is of sweet dark plum with hints of brandy, and the palate expresses intense plum with a trace of dark chocolate and layers of complexity derived from oak maturation. The wine style has a long and persistent after palate. It is enjoyable drinking whilst young but has the structure to develop exceptionally over the next 20+ years.
Suggested to serve this wine over at least six nights if you can make it last that long!
Oak maturation adds a delicious rancio character to the wine, and changes the flavour profile over time. The longer the wine spends maturing in oak, the more integrated the brandy, and the more complex the wine becomes. Our individual flyers explain the unique bouquet and flavour profiles of these wines.
