- The Wine
The Black Beast. Inky black, intense and incredible balance. This wine pulls 4G's, edge of your seat drinking — WOW!
- Black & purple with black hues.
- Black currant, plums, cinnamon, raspberry conserve, Chinese 5 spices, dark olives and savoury oak.
- Sweet jubes, plums and creamy oak make up an enormous mouth filling front palate. The wine exhibits masculine texture, weight and power that seem to consume your entire mouth. The intriguing part of this wine is that the tannin begins to build on the front palate and finishes at the back an astounding 45 seconds after spitting or swallowing the wine. This is our 4th vintage of this wine and we are delighted that our perseverance in both the vineyard and winery has paid off!
- Hard cheese platter featuring traditional Red Leicester, Grana Padano Parmesan & mature Jersey Cheddar.
- 5-8 years
- Vintage Notes
The 2009 growing season presented us with good winter and spring rains. The warm days and cool nights leading up to harvest provided us with near perfect conditions. As a result, the 2009 wines have wonderful finesse and brightness. Not cloying or over ripe they display remarkable richness and vibrancy that will see them drinking well for the next 5-8 years.
