It tastes of raisins, dried figs and dates with a touch of coffee (I wonder whether it would go well with muesli?), there’s lots of slightly burnt toffee too. It’s full bodied with a massive wallop of 18% alcohol, which warms and burns.
This wine sells well and has won plenty of awards, but it was just a bit too much for me – too much alcohol, too much sugar, just too much.
You can pick it up for around £8-10, but I’d rather opt for an Oloroso or Vin Santo instead.
