Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep brown/amber with an khaki tinge.

Aroma

Lifted intense aged-oak nutty flavours, with walnut, pistachio and vanilla oak characters showing the refinement of a true barrel aged tawny.

Palate

Extremely rich and full with a viscous palate of raisins, dark chocolate and Christmas pudding. The palate is round, luscious and long but has fine tannins which balance out the sweetness and help make the finish of the wine dry and savoury.

Food Matching

Aged Vintage cheddar

Peak Drinking

Best consumed within 1 year of opening.
