Appearance: A very deep, almost opaque mahogany colour, profound.
Nose: A wine of great aromatic richness, with a great depth of raisined fruit, alongside toasted notes and aromas of honey, plum jam, almonds, hay, fruits preserved in syrup and dates.
Palate: A prodigiously sweet wine, dense, very unctuous and spicy, flavourful and elegant with notes of raisins, apples and caramel. This is a truly exquisite wine.
When to drink: An ideal wine for drinking as an aperitif or after meals, either on its own or with dessert.
Serving temperature: Consume at an optimum temperature of 16ºC / 61ºF.
