Nose: very fragrant and intense, with lots of polished wood and dried fruits. Almonds and walnuts. The varnished oak plays a nice role here, giving it depth and adding to the richness. Orange peel. Also hints of dates and figs, toffee and mocha, blood oranges, even with nuances of black cherries, nice.
Mouth: fairly gentle and slightly less wide, with a moderate hint of glycerol and implied sweetness. Caramel coated nuts, raisins and a similar hint of cherries and other mature fruits. Some spicy notes from the wood, as well as traces of salinity.
Availability: around € 18-20 in Spain, more like € 25-30 in other markets. Quite a wide distribution.
Full bodied and extremely complex fortified white wine with intense notes of caramel and nuts that disguise the bone dry finish.
