The wine is extremely old and exemplifies a classic Australian style. The colour is of an aged wine with a soft tan appearance and tinges of green towards the edge. There is a huge array of characters in this fortified ranging from walnuts, dried raisins, caramels, toffee, molasses, caramelised cumquats and lime, melted butter and after a moment aromas of beef stock, dusty hessian, and dried herbs appear. Overall the aroma has amazing concentration. The palate has superb intensity and is fresh with flavours of baked figs, butterscotch, toffee and dried fruits such as pear and nectarine. As it opens more and more characters appear balanced with great rolling rancio length from the time spent in barrel.
