Crafted from carefully selected grapes grown on 20 year old vines. The wine is then aged in American and French oak barrels for two years, followed by three years in bottle prior to release.
It is deep cherry-red with violet hues. Gamey, leathery aromas with sweet red fruits and grilled meat, promise interesting flavours to follow. The medium-bodied palate has a tarry, leathery start followed by dark chocolate, liquorice, piquant red and blackcurrant fruit flavours provide perfectly harmonised support. The fine tannins on the classic, textured finish, add a hint of white pepper. Although drinking beautifully now, it has enough backbone to keep for a further seven or eight years.
Wine Style : Juicy fruity reds , Silky smooth reds, Vanilla and toasty wines
