Description

Lovely to see producers aging their wines prior to release, this collaboration between viti guru Bob Newton and John Forrest always a highlight of our tasting calendar. Something of a cult wine in that it's a well kept secret among wine lovers, this 2011 is a beautifully complete wine, showing off the cooler, damper vintage in a classically Bordeaux-styled package that shows off lots of fruit, savoury, cedary goodness and length to burn. Surprisingly ripe Cabernet-led expression, it also has Merlot and Malbec playing back up. Great drinking now, this wine will drink for another 5 to 8 years through 2025.
