Valley Selection NV Fine Old Tawny Fortified

There's still enough cool and rainy weather ahead to enjoy a fortified and according to Dan Traucki our Valley Selection NV Fine Old Tawny Fortified is definitely one to savour...
"The few current release fortifieds that I have tried recently are ever so young and quite sharp. Don’t get me wrong, they have the potential to become sensational wines, but by the time that happens I will probably be “pushing up daisies”, as they say. Very few are currently showing a goodly degree of refinement and silkiness.
That is probably why I was totally blown away when I sampled the GAPSTED WINES VALLEY SELECTION NV FINE OLD TAWNY (LIMITED RELEASE). Wow, this is “the real deal”, “the complete package” – silky-smooth and sublime. It starts off with a rich honeyed raisin and rancio bouquet that tantalises the nostrils. The palate completely seduces the senses and taste buds with a palate coating sweet unctuous mouthfeel that is so rich and round and yet on the finish has some crispy vanillin acidity making it dry and non-cloying. This wine embodies quality tawny fortified wine. The label says that the average age of the wine is 15-years-old.
This Tawny is utterly, bloody gorgeous and I will delight in finishing the bottle slowly over the next few weeks. Normally I donate the bottles I have sampled and reviewed to some of my local pensioners, but not in this case. Sorry guys, I am going to savour every last drop of this nectar.
Well, I am off to have another sip of this magnificent wine, so I’ll say ciao and have a great week remembering to #chooseaustralianwines and when possible try #emergingvaireties."

Thanks for the review Dan, we are so glad you enjoyed it!
