Bright golden in colour, the nose is filled with tropical aromas of dried pineapple, mango and with raisined, caramelised notes. The palate has a fresh acid entry which develops richness and envelopes the mouth in a fusion of tropical flavours tapering to a lingering, delicate finish.

Kings vied for possession of this wine; Louis Philippe sent emissaries from France to fetch it; Napoleon drank it on the island of St Helena to find solace in his lonely exile; Frederick the Great and Bismarck ordered it; and the English Prime Minister – who had sampled it with much delight at Downing Street – made sure that regular consignments from the Cape were delivered to Buckingham Palace for the King.
The combination of high residual sugar and alcohol levels has a well known preservative effect on bottled wine. Provided the cellaring conditions are ideal (12ºC and 75-85% humidity) this wine is capable of ageing for at least 20 years from the date of bottling, and in many cases somewhat longer than that.
