This is an organic wine elaborated by means of oxidative ageing for 6 years in American oak casks and has an ABV of 16%.

Official Tasting notes

Intense mahogany colour with golden hues. Surprising due to its initial smell of raisins and rounding off with an elegant evolution (green apple), with added finos of dry laurel leaf and incense. Potent and harmonious.

Satiny and delicately sweet, but dry, fresh and with an increasing aromatic subtlety. The alcohol is not
perceptible and provides silkiness to a very aromatic wine which leaves a long lasting finish.

Gastronomy

The cold kills the nuances of this wine, reason why it is recommended to serve the wine only one degree less than the ambient temperature. Once opened, it can last several months in perfect condition in the fridge.

It can be drunk alone as an aperitif or afternoon wine. Perfect for serving with dishes which include among its ingredients figs, dates, maple syrup, chocolate, curry or soy sauce. It is a good choice for smoked fish, red meat and meat stews.

Our notes

Nose

Lots going on with raisins, dates, caramel, camp coffee, mango and peach syrup. Creme brulee notes also come through as the wine warms up.

Palate

The palate delivers cocoa and tropical fruit with a hint of ginger with a long dry finish.

Conclusion

We really enjoy going back and trying these wines again. It is interesting to discover how our perception of these wines has changed. Having more experience of them has certainly changed our percption of them.
