Tastes like: Heaven. It’s so luscious, layered and intense with flavours of treacle, espresso and rich dried fruit.
Goes with: Premium, hand-made chocolate or on its own to appreciate the full depth and range of flavours.
Average age: Rare by name and rare by nature, it is the pinnacle of the style. Blended from only the best parcels of fruit with base material from the 1970s; it has an average age of 25 years and is the final tier of the four classifications, Rutherglen, Classic, Grand and Rare.
Cellaring: We’ve done the hard work in the winery by ageing in old fortified barrels. Once bottled, no further ageing will occur, so we recommend you enjoy within a year or two of purchase. It’s freshest within the first few weeks of opening the bottle and won’t “go off”.
What are fortified wines? Still keen to learn more about how fortifieds are made and about the four-tier classification system? Read our guide here. We also sell a fabulous range of home barrels and blending fortifieds for people who want to develop their own unique blend.
