A consistent trophy winner, this luscious fortified dessert wine is predominantly muscat - vibrant, deep amber-brown with a green rim. The bouquet is lifted and layered with spice, butterscotch and fruit cake. Many years maturation in old oak casks has produced richness and rancio complexity. Intense flavours of raisin and toffee sustain a long, clean finish. Aptly labelled, this limited release has the stamp of a true Artizan – hand crafted and unique. These qualities are also reflected in the label with original artwork by Merilyn Hutton.
