2008 Cellar Reserve

Tasting Notes

A wine of integrity exclusively released from our museum cellars. A rare offering to behold with 10 years age and drinking extremely well. Harvested from our family vineyard and specialist Adelaide Hills growers this is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz. The warmer vintage of 2008 has provided this wine generous fruit flavours and a rich red colour. The bouquet exhibits lifted aromas of mulberries, cherries and plums with hints of subtle oak. The palate gives soft, full fruit flavour of dark berries, gentle tannins and spicy notes on a finish that lingers on. Matured in both new & seasoned French Oak barriques & hogshead barrels for 20 months.

 

What the reviewers are saying

An elegant Cru Bourgeois style with a classically gravelly texture and a pristine, complex perfume of ripe black and red berries, fresh cedar/vanilla oak and slatey, dried herbal undertones. Medium to full-bodied, it’s long and brightly lit, with a vibrant core of fruit that extends long and shapely towards a persistent and finely balanced finish. Excellent value. Jeremy Oliver
