Well known proprietor, Luigi Bazzani and his wife, Athalie, began their wine adventure in 1977 when, as part of a plan for an early retirement, they purchased Warrenmang vineyard from Wally Henning. Wally was a pioneer of the region's 'renaissance' that began in the early 1960's. He owned extensive vineyard plantings around the Moonambel area but sold the majority to French-American businessman John Goelet who founded Taltarni in 1974. Wally kept his favoured portion of land (200 acres on the edge of the estate). He described it as "The jewel in the Pyrenees crown" and named it 'Warrenmang'.
The first commercial vintage from the estate vineyard was in 1978. Luigi began the task of producing wines which gained a fast following by the mid 1980's, and many readers will recall seeking out their flagship Grand Pyrenees' Cabernet blend. We're pleased to report that this wine is back in top form.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (32%), Cabernet Franc (13%) and Shiraz (5%) saw maturation in a combination of French and American oak for a period of 36 months. Totally opaque black crimson red colour with deep dark purple red hue. The nose displays excellent intensity with ripe blackcurrant, dark chocolate and liquorice scents to the fore followed by some cedar and spice. Full bodied the palate possesses an abundance of rich ripe blackcurrant and dark chocolate fruit followed by some mint, cedar and spice. Very fine grained solidly built tannin structure. Long aftertaste of ripe blackcurrant, choc mint, cedar and spice.
Cellar 5-6 years.
