Deep orange-gold. Exotic, high-toned aromas of orange marmalade, fresh apricot and honey. An exotic, very sweet, VT-weight fruit bomb in the mouth, with a resiny element adding complexity to the high-toned fruits. The wineandrsquo;s firm spine of acidity cuts through its thickness and extends the very long finish.
