The more traditional winemaking methods are followed, involving a short fermentation period in contact with the skins, which is then interrupted by the addition of quality grape alcohol. The wine macerates until the end of winter (5 to 6 months) to allow full extraction of flavour and aroma. It is then transferred into vats and the masses pressed. Ageing for 8 years of barrel maturation in 200-litre oak wood casks, in a carefully monitored environment. These casks will have been previously used in the ageing of malt whisky.

Aroma and intense flavours of orange blossom, citrus, bitter orange marmalade, raisins, figs and nuts, a full palate and excellent balance between sweetness and acidity. Other flavours to be found are marmalade, Earl Grey tea, currants, dried apricots, figs, rancidity, and nuts.
