Bottled 1983, decanted 2007. A rich brown /red colour, 70% opaque. Subdued on the nose, toffee and tomato and a touch of VA. Sweet and toffeed palate, huge levels of acidity balance the concentrated sweetness of the sugar-preserved fruit and golden syrup. Intense acidity cleans the finish (but burns on the aftertaste) and delivers a massive finish. The finish is incredible but the rest is mildly disappointing. 90/100. Drunk 23-Sep-14. Decanted 4 hours.
