VINTAGE RESERVE 1974
The Tasting Notes
Rich and oaky with vibrant vanilla sweetness and an intriguing hint of polished leather and liquorice. With a little water, fresh fruit and spice bursts through – orange marmalade, ripe berries, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramelised pear.
Initially very sweet with a vanilla toffee character. Oak tannin develops with time. A satisfying oily texture and a slightly drier flavour emerges. With water notes become velvety soft and mellow. Beautiful layers of fruit, spice, oak and the merest hint of smoke are revealed.
Very long lasting with lingering oak.
