This wine is matured in new French oak barrels for 23 months, depending on the vintage. We use 100% new oak to produce this full bodied wine style. Typically the bouquet is of intense blackberries, dark cherries and dark plums with savoury oak and a hint of earthiness. The palate is typically intense, with flavours of ripe blackberries, dark cherries and dark plums. The wine style is supported by silky tannins and has a long, persistent, savoury finish.
The Winemaker’s Reserve is an elegant and balanced wine style. It is enjoyable drinking whilst young but has the structure to develop exceptionally in the future.
We suggest serving this wine with rare meats including game, beef and lamb, slow cooked and marinated meats.
