The world’s best finish to a meal (or at anytime) and one of my all time favorite wines, luscious and rich with apricot marmalade, candied pineapple, acacia honey and a long, opulent and lingering creamy finish.

Tangy in color. Deep and sweet and voluptuous with great toasty fruit. Lemon curd and honeyed with bright white flowers and huge thrust. Very good
