d'Arenberg Vintage Fortified 2014
Lush aromas of fruitcake, spice and plum pudding, topped off with melted butter and brandy snaps on the side. palate is dense and layered, the tannins chewy and mouth-filling interwoven with rich, ripe dark fruits - figs, plums, star anise, liquorice, cloves and candied citrus peel. There's line and length from the acid and tannin backbone, leaving the finish long, clean and fresh.
