Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of toffee, honey and dried pineapple follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of sweetness and a long vanilla, apple and lightly spicy aftertaste. Thick and viscous.

Critical Acclaim

"Green apple, toffee and lemon tart aromas open to a full body. Very sweet, with caramel, cooked apple and light vanilla flavors. Long and flavorful. Dense and sweet. Best after 2009. 3,330 cases made. "
