Wine Review: This goldenrod colored dessert "Stickie" from Australia opens with a pineapple and apricot bouquet with a hint of prune. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly viscous and a touch acidic. The flavor profile is an apricot and apple jelly blend with notes of golden raisin, orange and honey. The Panel also detected hints of orange and clove in this tasty offering. The finish is sweet and pleasant. The Panel suggested enjoying it on its own or pairing it with Great Hill blue cheese. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Superbly indulgent, wonderfully rich and complex. A nose strongly reminiscent of dried apricots is the very start of a vinous journey full of excesses. The palate is equally dominated by these exorbitant apricot notes but of equal importance are the complexing flavors of ginger bread, tinned pineapple, honey, cinnamon and cumquat. The weight of the wine is unrivalled but the whole package is neatly dragged back into check by the crisp acid backbone ensuring the bottle, once opened is unlikely to see out the evening.
