With an average age of three and a half years, it still has plenty of luscious fruit, delicate nutty aromas and hints of dried raisin. On the palate, very well balanced with a youthful fruit character, balaced sweetness and more of the nutty notes, which integrates well with a long spirity finish.
A totally spot-on pairing for milk chocolate.
