New Limited Release
A delicious fortified dessert wine, vintaged from 100 year old vines.  Deep amber-brown in colour with a lifted nutty bouquet.  The palate is sweet and luscious and layered with toffee, raisin and caramel.  Maturation in old brandy casks has added complex rancio character and a rich smooth finish. Average barrel age of 10+ years.

Accolades
“A delicious example of this Spanish sherry variety.  Luscious with deep flavours of nuts and toffee.  It’s sweet and fortified with excellent spirit.  Has developed a lovely complex rancio character.  A beauty.  93/100.  Cellar 15 years.”
Ray Jordan, The West Australian Wine Guide

“Medium yellow-orange core. Refined PX. Fig, velvety sultanas and orange marmalade. Crisp acidity, medium body, pronounced aromas and balanced alcohol. Long, fresh finish with hints of demerara sugar.”  Silver medal.
