Post by AHB » 22:30 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Confraria ceremony. Bottled 2014. Served chilled. Wide rim on a soft brown colour. Soft brown sugar on the nose with a sharp star fruit tone. Brown sugar entry, some acidity gives good clarity. More burnt sugar and caramel on the later palate with some tropical fruit. Some heat on the aftertaste is followed by a long finish of brown sugar and rubber bands. 82/100. 22-Jun-17.
