Opulent and weighty nose of honey, mango, orange peel and forest mushrooms.  Having spent so long ageing in a barrel, it is highly recommended to give this Aszú some time to aerate, allowing the aromas to unfold. A palate rich in acacia blossoms, marmalade and passion fruit aromas. This is a well-balanced and concentrated sweet white wine, with a creamy texture and a long finish.
