DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Deep, dense red. 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:

With several varieties co-fermented to make this wine, the palate is vibrant full of interest. Notes of white pepper, guava and juicy blood plum - oak is but a vehicle behind this abundance of spicy fruit. There is a lovely savoury note which will make this wine a great food companion.
