An acidity-chasing level of alcohol in a region as warm as the Hunter, yet flavour does not feel compromised. Lightweight, dry and versatile. Jubey lemon oil, apricot pith and dried hay notes sashay along a gentle beam of cedar oak and a core of vanilla cream and cashew.

Grape Varietal— Verdelho

Sweet and rich, this gold-medal-winning Fortified Verdelho is truly a decadent drop. Intoxicating apricot, melt-in-your-mouth butterscotch and heady caramel romance the palate, a swooning symphony of sticky date pudding. The dessert of your dreams. 

Over the years, numerous Verdelho vintages combined to offer this gold-medal winner - a deeply rich, serenely sweet blend. The latest pick of fruit was crushed and destemmed before a very cold ferment on skins. We interrupted the maturation with a splash of the best brandy, which yielded at least 17.5% alc/vol. After pressing off the juice into barrels, we left it to age, and over the years and have topped it up with a little more Verdehlo and brandy for luxurious, rich, decadent depth.
