Aged Chardonnay underwent controlled oxidation in barrel for 7+ years and then fortified with grain spirit. Orange-amber in colour, this intriguing apéritif fortified wine has a nutty nose of dried apricots; medium-bodied with expressive flavours of fig, cashew nuts and orange peel carried on lively acidity. Great length. Reminded me of a youthful Madeira.
