This is not so much a sweet wine (although there is plenty of marmalade flavor here) as it is hugely rich and concentrated. It is like drinking drops of nectar, with honey, dryness and ripe fruit. At this early stage in its development the richness dominates—it needs time to develop. Imported by New Castle Imports.
