Dark-coloured sweet wine with an iodised meniscus and pink in appearance. Scents of coffee, cocoa, candied fruit, and citrus. It has significant varietal weight and deep hints of raisins. Complex and intense. Silky and not at all oversweet. The aftertaste is long and very pleasant.
Perfect as a dessert wine; it pairs with migas, cheeses, citrus fruits, and compotes like quince jelly.
