Very lifted. Pure. Loads of floral notes and fruit. Rich, full and complex. A moderate match with the mousse

Deep amber core to greening caramel rim. Rich aromas of burnt orange, caramel and cold sweet tea. Intensely exotic and luscious palate of rose liqueur, caramel apple, cold sweet tea lovely acid lift and balanced just warming spirit on the palate. The bitter caramelized orange flavours in the wine is the perfect pairing to the chocolate caramel desert.

Pretty nose with cold tea and camomile, aromatic and fresh, good vitality on the palate, elegant and well balanced with a long, fresh finish. A lovely match with the mousse, brings out the chocolate orange hints in both.

Bright mid caramel-bronze colour. Distinct raisin/muscat aromas, deep molasses overtones. Bright, lively fruit on palate, great length. With food: Great with the chocolate mousse

Deep brown with green hue, musk, cloves and spice aroma, gently sweet with long sweet finish, the orange rind and caramel chocolate accompanies the wine and lifts the Muscat fruit.

Mid-deep tawny. Early grey, slightly floral, fresh raisin and toffee. Burnt toffee flavours, nutty rich and warming. Brings our flavours of wine and food.

Amber with a slight green tinge. Perfumed lift, rose petal and toast, slight rancio. Sweet up front, slightly cloying, slight donut, with flavour and length. Food: has filled in the palate, and added an extra dimension, slight steely finish.
