Made from a single vintage of Verdelho (a white grape) which is allowed to hang on the vine until they have become sultanas. When picked, the fruit develops an amazing richness reflected in the wine. Following fermentation and fortification, it is aged in old red wine barrels which adds to its colour.
- Appearance – light gold with a hint of red. Aroma – liquid honey with tinges of sultanas and dried fruit.
- Palate – honey is reinforced along with fruit cake and dried fruit flavours which remain on the palate long after the first taste.
- Awards – This wine is sold before it makes it to a wine show.
