Beautifully fragrant grapey flavours fill the glass overlayed with honeysuckle notes; unctious and full sweet luscious muscat and sultana flavours; sweetness well balanced with livelyacidity for a harmonious finish; delicious fortified dessert wine to enjoy chilled with apple and almond tart or fresh fruit platter.

About The Harvest
Cold morning grapes were picked.
In The Cellar
The grapes were destalked, crushed and pumped into red wine fermenters where enzymes for flavour extraction were added. 24-hour skin contact was given before being lightly pressed. The juice was settled clean and treated with Bentonite to make protein stable before being fortified to 18.5% alcohol.
