This is a unique and extremely rare experience. The original base wine is well over 50 years old. It is highly concentrated and complex with a luxurious sensation of bouquet, flavour and texture. A once in a life time opportunity.

Winery Tasting Notes
The appearance is unique, after decades of barrel aging, evaporation and occasional topping the colour is deep golden amber with khaki and olive green hues.
The bouquet reveals intense sweet toffee, caramel, molasses and golden syrup aromas intensified by the heady mix of brandy spirit and rancio nuttiness. The bouquet is compelling, attractive and sensuous; it’s so intense it’s almost tactile.
On entry, sweet toffee and caramel flavours are obvious while the rancio characters of walnuts, dried fruits, coffee and vanilla gently grow to overpower the palate with enormous weight and depth. The drying rancio characters cut through the initial sweetness and deliver a smooth clean back palate with lingering flavours on the after taste. A small sip opens the door to an unbelievable experience.
This is truly a dessert wine to savour on its own or possibly with some nuts and dried muscatels. Tasting this wine evokes images of the businessmen’s club with polished oak and mahogany walls, billiard tables and large Havana cigars.
With over fifty years barrel aging this wine has been recently bottled and is ready to be enjoyed. Once opened the wine will keep for many months when the cap is resealed. This is a rare experience and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
