Our Merchant Prince is classified 'Rare' - it is the pinnacle, the richest, most complex and complete wine. The ultimate in intensity. Raisined sweetness explodes on the front of the palate. Complex nutty flavors flow through the full length of the palate and the drying tannin finish lingers for many minutes.
Fruit is left to ripen on the vine until as late as possible to ensure the necessary high degree of lusciousness. Juice is fermented for only a very short time before being fortified with neutral spirit and stored in oak to mature. Only the very best fruit from the finest vintages is used in the blend. As with any blended wine, it is difficult to specify an exact age. The oldest base wine is well over 60 years old, with only wines of the highest standard from excellent vintages being added to this outstanding solera.
