Tasting notes: A full sweet dessert wine with a rich golden colour. A bouquet of yellow peaches, apricots, ripe melons, raisins,Turkish Delight and Mint Humbugs. Full bodied, plush and syrupy on the palate yet fresh and balanced by acidity. Beautifully integrated and a great example of why one would want to “fortify” the flavour in the grape.
