Fine Brandy

Fine Brandy recommendation for the weekend: Try the Uitkyk 10 YO Grand reserve.

Estelle Lourens, winemaker at the estate, describes the result as a rare, exceptional brandy of high complexity with an ideal wood balance and an alcohol level of 38% volume. On the palate it displays a potpourri of flavours including fruit, vanilla, cloves and other spices.
