Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) The fine, low-strength brandy spirit plays a wonderful supporting role, selected for its 'tails' character, all juniper berries, spice and fruit and 'hearts' - roses and apricots and brings warmth and richness to the wine. The palate is dense and layered, the tannins chewy and mouthfilling interwoven with rich, ripe dark fruits - figs, plums, star anise, licorice, cloves and candied citrus peel. There's line and length from the acid and tannin backbone, leaving the finish long, clean and fresh.
