Fortified Wines | NV The Banished Fortified Grenache (500ml)
Lonely Grape, Aug 2009
This wine is not available at this time – it has been so popular that they had to remove it from sale. The wine is drawn from a 20 year old solera system, so to keep with wines integrity only a certain amount can be withdrawn. Expect the wine back at the cellar door in about 6 months. The wine shows all that you would expect from a 20 year old fortified – rancio characters, hazelnuts and toffee – YUM. The packaging is first class and I understand this wine has been frequently purchased with gift giving in mind!

Creamy vanillan, caramel, stewed fruits, brandy soaked apricots and sweet alcohol make up the pungent aroma.
This is a powerful fortified Grenache, the sweet fruit is balanced by a fresh acidity. This fortified is extremely viscous, and the brandy soaked dried apricot character follows through on the palate. The Banished warms you up from the inside!
