Winery Tasting Notes
Deep mahogany in colour, with olive green tinges.
A powerful bouquet displaying an excellent balance of rich fruit, nutty vanillin oak and a hint of chocolate. Further complexity is derived from the aged rancio character and fine brandy spirit, the epitome of the Para liqueur style.
Full bodied, rich and luscious, with concentrated lingering flavours. With aging the wine has become complex, smooth and mellow. A pronounced rancio character is also evident, derived from extended oak maturation.
Ideally suited to Cheese & Dessert. Can be served chilled, refrigerate after opening to ensure freshness
