Tasting Notes


International Wine and Spirit Competition source
2009 tasting note year

"Best in Class" Gold Medal  Lovely vanilla scented oak, violets, mulberries and winter fruit cake spices. Luscious bouquet which has everything in it, all in perfect harmony.  Classic style, mighty full body and flavours, fair balancing acidity fleshed out with wonderfully ripe fruit and sweet spice. Composed, impeccable, and though it already drinks well it should be allowed to age much longer,

Score: Gold Medal
