The 28th of March was an auspicious occasion for Ron Laugton at Jasper Hill - and it was nothing to do with the fact that we paid him a visit on that day. At around 4:30pm in the afternoon all the grapes for Emily’s Paddock were harvested, and as it happens this event coincided with perfect physiological ripeness, and from a biodynamic perspective, the ‘right phase of the moon’. Now, Laugton could hardly be considered a new age ‘nutter’ given his science background, but from his own observations has noticed some important correlations in plant and flavour development which correspond to moon cycles.The 2000 Georgia’s Paddock is a barrel sample, taken from a variety of casks – some New French, some old, some old American with degrees of toast, varying from medium to high.The final tasting notes will no doubt vary from this one, but it will be interesting to observe the evolution of this wine over the next few months and then over the next decade.
Intense black, crimson colour. Superb nose, aroma of lifted spices, blackcurrant, redcurrants and vanilla – a perfumed experience. The wine is totally mouthfilling, and perfectly balanced. Wonderful, fully ripened fruit with intense power and flavour, and in spite of a potential finished alcohol level of 15%, there is not the slightest trace of jamminess. Velvet smooth tannins, with exceptionally long aftertaste. Drink early –two years after release, or wait for maximum complexity at the 8 year mark.
