Hine Rare VSOP is a blend made from Ugni Blanc grapes from the Grande Champagne (60%) and Petite Champagne (40%) appellations that are aged six to twelve years in French Limousin oak barrels. A stunning cognac, it has a beautiful golden copper colour and boasts elegant aromas of orange peel, oak and creamy vanilla. On the palate, complex flavours of ginger, orange, chocolate and oak are detectable before a very long finish of caramel and spice complete the wonderful experience.
