From over 100-year-old vines, this historic Rutherglen fortified wine is as beautiful as it is complex. Molasses-hued, the ethereal nose sings with a multitude of aromas: dark chocolate, walnut, the spine of an old book and maple syrup syphoned straight from the tree beneath dried, crunching leaves. The first sip feels as though you're drinking satin, as all of the aromas morph into flavors slinking around the tongue. While it's raisiny and rich, it's far from cloying, and the finish is seemingly endless. A taste of Australian wine history.
