Heritage Vines 1978 Tawny


This outstanding fortified wine is a bright tawny colour with a green edge. There are aromas of concentrated toffee, caramel and dried fruit with refreshing orange zest. The palate is lush and full while the wine finishes with creamy hazelnut and crisp acidity.

A wine ideally suited a rich cheese platter – think creamy blue with roasted nuts!
