Deep tawny/black coffee colour with a hint of olive at the edge. Mocha and coffee bean aromas with toffee and malt with just a hint of cold tea. Palate of malt salted caramel with mocha and cold tea notes, good length of flavour with persistence. A luscious wine with age characters evident.
'A wine that Stephen Chambers has placed outside the normal Rutherglen classification system, 'old vine' rather than 'old wine'. Yet this is clearly much older than the entry point wine, now with edges of brown, the flavours distinctly more complex, with a burnt spice savoury edge to the toffee, cold tea and Christmas cake flavours. Exceptional value." James Halliday
