The nose has lifted aromas of caramel and concentrated marmalade with subtle butterscotch. The palate is rich and complex with notes of fruitcake, malt and butterscotch with a wonderful freshness. This wine has already been matured in barrels and no further ageing in the bottle is required.

If you're on the hunt for a sweet wine, this is about as decadent as they come. Muscadelle, blended in a modified solera system of small oak barrels for an average of twenty years, is luscious and intensely sweet, with aromas of golden syrup, honey, cold tea and Christmas cake (there's your food match!). It's viscous and immensely rich on the palate, layered with potent sweetness of toffee, apricot jam, raisins and dates. A wine of monumental power, epic persistence and unrelenting line. Pour it at fridge temperature to pull it back a touch.
