I fancied a decent wine to pair with my Chinese meal. The dry cork crumbled a little but I managed to extract it. I do love the old school highly decorative label, especially the ma so that I can see where the wine came from. The deep amber colour shows gold at the rim. The nose reminds me of toffee apples with a hint of espresso coffee, and charcoal before I light it for my bbq. The palate is sweet but not overtly so, and the respectable acidity keeps the palate fresh. Seamless dried fruits and toffee taste, thesis a gorgeous old treasure that I thoroughly enjoyed drinking, with or without food.
