Wine Tasting notesDeep amber - mahogany in color with the green gold tinges indicative of great age. The nose is extremely complex and fragrant, possessing an array of nutty, vanillin, aged characters melding seamlessly with hints of raisined fruit, malt and lifted spirit. The palate effortlessly displays the famed attributes of great Liqueur Tawny; luscious, rich and full flavored with mouthfilling viscosity and a slightly dry finish. Intense raisined fruit, walnut and toffee flavors harmonise with subtle vanillin oak and rancio complexity before a remarkably long finish.

Readers can take their pick but the difference in price might ensure that the Grandfather Tawny Liqueur is the way to go. Amazingly rich and honeyed with hints of figs prunes caramel and toffee it is a gorgeous brilliantly made fortified wine composed of Shiraz and Mourvedre. This brilliant fortified is remarkably light on its feet given its massive richness. Thank good winemaking great natural extract and zesty acidity for keeping this wine fresh in spite of its huge residual sweetness and power. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Fully aged but bright tawny; the very complex Xmas cake bouquet has all manner of Asian spices asking to he heard; he palate is very luscious yet magically made elegant by its burnt sugar acidity. James Halliday.
