Tasting Note:

Picked on the 15th October, the same day as the Mambourg, this nevertheless has twice the residual sugar, albeit with only 10% alcohol. Very bright on the nose, with sweet raisin and dried apricot notes, the palate immediately impresses with its luscious, sleek texture and seamless delivery of fruit. This really is a very intense SGN, rich and concentrated with flavours of caramelised pineapple, fig, Turkish delight and spun sugar. Needs time to blossom fully.
