Description: Bright old gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose.
Not for the faint at “heart”. Sorry couldn’t resist. Big, heavy, bold & utterly delicious.
Positives: This complex wine features medium+ toasted oak, vanilla, coconut, lemon meringue pie, roasted marshmallows, crème brûlée, walnuts, butterscotch, pineapple, orange & tangerines. Full body with good acidity, a long length & the alcohol is well integrated.
Interesting Point: The wine is unfined & unfiltered.
Drink now or over the next 5 years on its own or pair it with turkey for Christmas.
