Succulent sweetie

Di Lusso Estate Appassimento, Mudgee 2010 AUD$65 (375ml)

This unusual ‘meditation wine’ is modelled on Italian Vin Santo. Imagine an unfortified amontillado sherry and you’ll be close. With a full amber colour, it displays complex wood-matured characters including malt, toffee and rancio. Sweet in the mouth but not luscious, with a cleansing, drying finish, pleasant savouriness and long aftertaste. (Diam cork; 7.1 per cent alcohol)
