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
