This late bottled Vintage shows brooding black cherry fruit with a huge cedary core. A simple wine with a fine dark colour, ripe and mouth filling and rounded off by sweet finish.
Nose: Excellent aroma expression and concentration, showing fresh berry fruit and gum cistus notes and soft spices hints.
Palate: Engaging beginning that leads to a wine of excellent volume, with a solid structure of fresh, compact, finely-textured tannins. Long and
lingering to the finish, with a remarkable aromatic explosion of berry fruit in perfect harmony with delicate notes of gum cistus. An engaging,
balanced wine, with a great bottle ageing potential.
Lifted and complex bouquet of ripe red wild berries, figs and a slight touch of wild indegigenous herbs. The palate shows excellent harmony and complexity, a fine presence and great balance between fresh wild berries, firm tannins, well balanced acidity and a long and elegant finish.
An exceptionally fine old tawny blend, aged for an average of 10 years in oak casks. Elegant and smooth, combining delicate wood notes and rich mellow fruit, it is bottled for immediate drinking.
Generosity is the theme of this wine. The
aromatic nose is a gift of baker’s
chocolate, fresh pipe tobacco, and
Christmas pudding, with fresh violets
lingering in the background together with
an array of spices, from nutmeg and
cinnamon, to cloves and ginger. This wine
has been fortified with high quality brandy
spirit during the natural fermentation
process. This has captured the beautiful
character of the fermenting grapes. The
palate is packed with intense flavours of
plummy sweet fruit, figs, nuts, dried apricot,
and exotic lively spice. Natural acidity has
been retained and provides a structure on
which the generous fruit body of this wine

generosity through on a long and warm

alluring rim of olive - illustrating the great
age of some of the parcels that have gone
into this wine. The nose is at first a cascade
of walnuts toasted almonds and rancio
(drying, mature complex oak character). It
then opens up to dried fruits, pears and
apples with a sprinkling of cinnamon spice,
further inspection gives up toffee, dried figs
and burnt butter. The palate is very lively,
tingling with spice and lift - a fantastic
balance of freshness and age, the sweetness
kept in check by the rancio.
Elegant notes of honey and dried fruits, in perfect harmony with fresh aromas of spice and orange peel.
Medium sweet with nutty and raisiny notes, prunes and caramel. Hints of hazelnuts.
A classic medium dry sherry with a golden amber appearance. Smooth, elegant and full-bodied with a woody aroma and nutty flavours.
Harveys Fino is instantly recognisable by its pale yellow, almost straw-like appearance. Its nose is a different matter entirely – it’s much less subtle than it’s looks with a hint of sea air and grilled almond. Full of dry fruits and almond notes, some are even able to recognise a hint of fresh dough as well. With a refreshingly crisp, dry palate, Fino unveils a nutty range of flavour that’s almost herb like.
