Fully botrytised, 46% residual sugar, from 30-year-old vines, this is an unctuous, TBA-style dessert wine. Honeyed and decadently rich, it soaks its peach and apricot fruit in a thick wash of honey and caramel, streaked with mocha and lightly scented with jasmine highlights. Should age for decades.
