Van Ryn - 12 Year Old Distillers ReserveSouth African Brandy
12 years of ageing ins small French oak casks produces a generous nose of intense gooseberry tones, cherry and vanilla.
The prominent wood character is well balanced with strong dried fruit flavours that develop into hits of coffee on the aftertaste, resulting in a soft, velvety finish with an opulent density.
Created from the finest Colombard grapes and handcrafted in the original 1845 Van Ryn's Distillery, each vintage undergoes a process of individualisation, becoming richly nuanced with a definitively subtle character and style. Van Ryn's 10 Yr Old Vintage Brandy bears testimony to the cellar's century-and-a half old tradition of maturing fine brandies to perfection.
