Tasting Notes= Made from the Muscat variety Muscat blanc a petit grain, it is made by using grapes that have been raised on the vine. It only goes through a very short ferment, then fortified to retain sugar. It is then aged in oak for long periods that concentrate flavours even more and blended using wines of different ages. It is sweeter and more full bodied than Topaque. We affectionately describe it as Christmas pudding in liquid form. It is rich, sweet and full bodied with raisin, plum jam, brandied /dried fruit and marmalade characters with caramel toffee coffee notes. With long luscious mouthfeel
Cellaring= 50 plus Years
Food Pairing= Fruitcake, Ice Cream, Camembert Cheese
Vineyard Information= Quartz over rich Loam
