Vintage1917
ColourAlmost tawny with an olive green rim but very beautiful in colour.Number of tastings1
BouquetZest of orange, fudge, some toffee, burned sugar, liquorice and some alcohol in the nose.Score range18.00 - 18.00
TasteMedium body. Of course mature with some delicate old acidity but balanced and very complex. Very easy to drink and enjoy with a taste of old grocery shop, fudge, burned sugar and lots of other things and a quite long and seductive finish.Average score
