Apple wine distilled to eau de vie, using the only Armagnac potstill found in the Southern Hemisphere. Matured further for 4 years on old French 225 liter oak chardonnay barrels. Rich caramel-gold colour. Mellow whiffs of baked apple with tarte
tatin spice highlights and just a delicate hint of flowers and macadamia nuts which entice
on the nose. The palate is suitably spirituous with apple strudel-, marzipan-, caramel- and
baked biscuit-flavours. Pleasant balance and gentle rich praline notes which linger for ages.
