Tasting Notes:

"Series C displays as black with opaque purple shades. This is a very expressive wine; it offers aromas of preserved blackberries and currants. Intense fruit concentration and fruit sweetness layers the wine. Hints of liquorice and graphite contribute to this massively opulent wine. The oak is very well integrated with notes of dark chocolate and espresso roast. The wine has a beautiful approach with a firm tannin structure; a big and broad mid-plate and a very silky exit."

Decanting before a meal will provide intensified aromatics. 40 barrels were produced.

For the Viticulturist and Winemaker, this was a perfect year. The weather was textbook during set, which lead to a seamless uniform ripening, ultimately, a crucial component for a high quality vintage. Hot sunny days before harvest resulted in rich and ripe fruit, leading to a beautiful concentration and intensity for this wine.

Series C matured for 22 months in 90% new French oak barrels and 12 months in bottle before release.

Food pairing

Series C will fit well now with intense flavoured red meat and game.
