Full flavoured, tasteful wine

Description: Gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features medium toasted oak, butter popcorn, lemon zest, mango, pineapple, apple pie, cream corn, almonds, ginger and roasted marshmallows on the nose. Full body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: Some heat from the 14.9% alcohol.

Interesting Point: Sales price is correct value for this wine.

Drink now or in the next 5 of years on its own or pair it with Chicken Liver Paté served Crème Brûlée Style, with Homemade Pan Brioche and Fruit Confiture

Tasted: 30 June 2017

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5/10 (Sale price: 8.5+/10) Total: 17+/20
