Tasting Notes
Colour The wine is a deep red with purple hues. Nose The aroma has a dense complexity that will open up with age with hints of orange chocolate, cassis, cedar, juniper berry and cloves. Palate The palate is very rich, long and well balanced. Ripe plum and chocolate/coffee flavors fill the mouth. Ageing ability of 20+ years given good cellaring.
Winemaker Notes
Winemaker's notes Some free run juice was drained off before fermentation in rotofermenters at 18-25*C. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French and American barriques before final blending. The aim of the style is to produce the best possible wine by highlighting the characters of the fruit and maintaining a balance and intensity of flavour that befits a great wine. The old vines at Vasse Felix provided the fruit for 85% of this blend.
