    The colour is like dark, caramelised butter with aromas of Turkish delight, tobacco and espresso. The palate is balanced and complex with flavours iof rich raisin fruit, rose petal, dried fig and cumquat. The finish is long but not too sweet.

    The Muscat grapes were crushed and fermented on skins for only a day. Fermentation was stopped using high strength grape spirit and then the clarified wine is transferred to large old oak for 2 - 3 year barrels to mature. Following this parcels are then carefully blended and returned to smaller oak barrels to reach the desired style and average age.
