Rare Tawny Fortified NV 375mL


True tawny in colour, with a lifted bouquet reflecting the age and class of the wine. Caramel, coffee, chocolate and spice aromas are predominant. The palate is vibrant and textured with a lingering aftertaste produced by many years maturation in small oak casks. Complex rancio and roasted nut characters perfectly balance the long finish.

"A very rich but fresh style. Great colour showing a green rim; smelling and tasting of prunes and raisins with nice nuttiness and delicious hints of orange peel." 95 Points
Winestate Magazine, June 2022 

"Deep mahogany colour with a green tint suggesting age at the rim. Christmas spices, dried peel and nutty aromatics. Deep and weighty on entry, a powerful wine that sits with dark spices and a significant rancio aged character. Goes very long and drying into the finish" 92 Points
Stuart Knox, The Real Review 2022

"Deep tawny colour with a dark centre and tawny-orange rim. The bouquet is rich and complex with lots of rancio as well as matured fruit characters, spices and burnished woody, old leather furniture touches. It's rich and full on the tongue with density and weight, the sweetness balanced well by tannin and rancio on a long and drying finish." 92 Points
Huon Hooke, The Real Review 2021
