'THE W' 2019
Every few years the weather gods truly align, and we find ourselves with an exceptional vintage. This makes great cause for celebration. From 2019 we bring you ‘The W’ – a superior wine crafted from the best of the best - hand-picked from our low-yielding vines in the premium Onetangi Valley, these hand selected parcels are matured in French Oak Barriques, to bring you a wine for cellaring and celebrations.
Dark plum with undertones of delicious cocoa and vanilla, leather saddle and subtle mushroom, a sprinkling of violets and morning dew, intertwined with beautifully refined tannins. Big, ripe, almost succulent red with cassis, blackcurrant, blackberry, ripe plum, Christmas cake, liquorice and nutty oak flavours. An heroic red that is very accessible now but could become even more interesting with bottle age.
Cellar well, enjoy from 2021-30.
