Our Recommendations:

  • Drink within the next 3 years
  • Decant before drinking
  • It is a wine under cork and the cork may crumble due to age
  • Drink within one sitting as the next day the wine would have become fortified

Vineyard: Redwind - McLaren Vale

Age: 22 years

Body: Full

Colour: Tawny with a red hue

Nose: Aromas of plum, violets and maturity 

Palate: Chocolate, licorice, vanilla, spice and blackcurrants

Notes: One of the hottest seasons on record and thus the vines were under a bit of heat stress. We see darker fruit characteristics and the influence of American Oak has given the wine some wonderful secondary characters. The wine has aged gracefully and still has a lot of character, sometimes jumping out of the glass at you. Give it 30 mins after opening to enjoy it to its full.

Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Cellaring Suggestion: Drink now and within the next 3 years
