"This wine has already aged for more than a decade when it is launched on the market, yet is has an incredible capacity to refine further in the bottle, without altering its unique characteristics." Ashleigh Saymour, winemaker

This sweet wine reveals new, surprising sensory experiences with every sip. A wine suitable for long ageing in the bottle.
