A cool and elegant character on the nose, with incredible depth and intensity. A rich aroma of honey, candied and dried fruits, quince and a hint of tobacco. A perfectly round body with a finely tuned balance of acidity and residual sugar create a harmonious drink. A long finish ensures that this powerful experience lingers on the palate.
