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  The wine is drawn from a 20 year old solera system, so to keep with wines integrity only a certain amount can be withdrawn.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!

Aroma

Creamy vanillan, caramel, stewed fruits, brandy soaked apricots and sweet alcohol make up the pungent aroma.

Palate

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!
