* A very sweet, rich, super smooth and unctuous fortified wine made from sun-dried grapes, loads of spicy, nutty, sweet impressions of dried fruit and caramel are harmoniously combined with a rich and velvety smooth sweetness. One of the classics of Spain.

- Drink this (Port-Sherry-cross-like) wine from now on, will withstand many month of open bottle, but will lose some of its freshness. There is no hurry in consuming. Will last decades but will not improve.
