About this product

In effect a non vintage, vintage - if that makes sense. A blend of a number of different years, the wine itself is produced like a vintage port, spending two to three years in cask and bottled without filtration. The wine is then aged for a further three years in bottle prior to being offered for sale. It will need to be carefully decanted from its sediment (or crust) before serving. Deep dark red color. On the nose concentrated and rich aromas cherry fruit with hints of, and an elegant and powerful streak of acidity and plenty of spices. On the palate it is firm and with great depth, excellent grip and a long finish. This wine will improve with further bottle age.
