Deep amber/ochre fading to a rusty orange and translucent fireside embers brown with an olive rim. The bouquet immediately proclaims the age and class of the wine. Freshly toasted pecan nuts, figs, fresh cream toffee and crème brulee with English breakfast tea, mandarin citrus peel and hints of maple syrup. Sweet and rich with an aged orange peel and honey marmalade middle with candied fruit, citrus and apricot. It has a drying finish thanks to the extremely complex and fresh rancio, and an almost electric, piercing intensity.
