DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Vibrant purple with a violet hue. A lifted and complex nose of maraschino cherry, boysenberry and ribenna berry. Lightly seasoned oak provides a touch of integrated vanilla and spice.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested in March and April and fermented on skins for 7 days. The wine then spent 12 months in one, two and three year old French and American oak prior to bottling.

Cellaring

The Sixties Block is a unique wine that’s both approachable in its youth and rewards cellaring for 7-10 years. Enjoy with pork and fennel sausages in a tomato based sauce.

Palate:

Medium bodied with vibrant fresh raspberry, mulberry and plum fruit. The palate is finely textured with a fresh natural acidity and well weighted tannins. Careful oak selection brings the wine together perfectly complimenting the spicy savoury finish to the wine.

Cheeky devils. There are some weirdly wonderful grape varieties in this... but they don’t tell you which except to say they are Spanish and Portuguese. May be they don’t know, they were planted in the ‘60’s. - 4/5 points
