TASTING NOTES

Amazing colour. Very heady nose. Very sweet and thick. A bit of a hark back to ye olde days. Massive. And a bit dry on the end. Just a tad lacking in the middle. Long.

16.5+/20

A linear and tight wine with blackberries, black cherries and minerals. Violets to boot. Medium-bodied, racy and clean. Second wine of Valandraud.
