"Smells like a handful of currants, with a good whack of spice. On the palate, it’s a very winey Port, with a big rush of fruit up front, backed up by a spicy, nutty finish. Well balanced and with good weight, a well-considered all-rounder." Hospitality, August 2011, New Zealand.

How to enjoy - Can be drunk lightly chilled as an apéritif or at moderate room temperature after meal. Serve it with cheese, nuts or melon, the classical accompaniments to Port.
