DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Vibrant purple with a violet hue. A lifted nose of ripe black fruits. Lightly seasoned oak provides a touch of mixed spice.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested in March and April and fermented on skins for 10 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:

A rich and mouth filling wine with lifted, vibrant plum fruit and blackberries on the mid palate balanced by fine, chewy tannins to finish. A serious wine with complex, depth of flavour and intensity.
