The grapes were harvested late, whole bunch pressed and fermented in older French oak barriques to produce a wine with great complexity and with a wonderful texture.

Cellaring

Food Match

Awards & Reviews

Bob Campbell MW - 93 points

  Richer, creamier and sweet than the regular label with a hint of toffee, guava, poached pear, anise and spice. A delicately luscious wine in an appealing style. Serve well chilled as a great aperitif or with moderately spicy dishes.
