The Empire (750ml)

Tasting Notes

Deep brick red with tawny hues.  Ripe spicy shiraz fruit with berry aromas and complex oak.  Ripe developed fruit with considerable depth. The length of wood maturation is showing in the oak complexity and the drying tannin finish.

Winemaking

Fermented on skins until the desired sweetness level was reached and then drained and fortified. Lengthy maturation in small oak casks.

Cellaring

Blended for optimum flavour and balance prior to bottling, this wine will not improve with further cellaring and should ideally be enjoyed soon after opening. Serve with fine coffee, blue cheeses and rich chocolate.

“A late bottled vintage style which shows the level of fruit flavours typical of Rutherglen to advantage.” Colin Campbell
