Bright deep straw colour, with pale gold hue. Classic aromas of honey, spice, raisins and ripe sultana. The palate has a luscious mouthfeel and creamy texture, with flavours of honey, very ripe sultana and dried raisins. However, whilst it is wonderfully sweet there is a dryness there which is enhanced by a hint of bitterness on the back palate, which acts as a counter balance to the richness. Clean acid finish, followed by a long dried raisin spice and honey aftertaste. The high alcohol is balanced by the intensely luscious fruitiness and masked by the silky texture.
