Sensory profile A luminous, gold-veined amber precedes a torrent of ripe, richly-sweet fragrances. The taster encounters an explosive harmony of candied fruit, sweet spice, and vibrant spirits, with seductive impressions of pear, candied citrus, hazelnut, clove, cherry and Grand Marnier alternately taking the stage as aromatic soloists. Gradually making their appearance are intriguing notes of pine nuts, cocoa powder, and persimmon marmalade, conjuring up comforting impressions of classic home-fare. The palate offers an amazing breadth of sensory impressions, which emerge and spiral into a finish that is dry, clean-edged, and richly-evolved. Velvety impressions of dried figs and dates in mid-progression contribute to creating an overall performance of magisterial impact, making possible pairings with full-flavoured, as well as highly-spiced, dishes. Overall, this is an energy-laden, vigorous Picolit that infuses the senses with a vibrant cornucopia of ultra-ripe fruit, seeds and nuts, and the noblest of distilled spirits!


Pairings Meditation native sweet wine. Blue stilton. Foie gras.
