McWilliam’s, Hanwood Estate, 5 year Classic Tawny, Riverina, NV


Walnut hue with garnet rim. Garam spice, caramel sauce, roasted hazelnut, roast tomato, strawberry red fruit, French toast and with a spiritous sheen. Viscous palate. Medium depth of flavour filled with nutty caramel sweetness but still showing its red fruit spectrum. With a fine and tight finish it stays fresh and clean.

RRP: $20
Alc: 18.5%
Rating: 18/20 (92/100)
