This is a Reserve wine – selected at a pre-bottling tasting of all the 2015 French Oak hogsheads. Open fermented before being basket pressed to all French oak. The end result feels complete. An opulent, full bodied, rich wine with full flavours of ripe berry fruit, ripe dark plum as well as overtones of dark chocolate, smoky vanillin cedar, caramel and peppery spice. These wonderful flavours linger, supported by velvet-like, fine tannins. A wine of great length and poise.
