Metaxa Grande Fine
Colour: amber Aroma: fully aromatic, woody, well balanced Taste: silky, ample, aged, with a slight touch of vanilla
The bouquet comes off very mature, brandy-like, raisiny and pruny with a genuine wood influence and vanilla-like sweetness that rounds out the raisin/prune aspect. Palate entry is truly raisiny/pruny and more bittersweet than sugar sweet; midpalate stage features a wood resin impact on the fruitiness and a honey and orange zest presence. Concludes long, gently sweet, moderately fruity and woody.
