- Closure: Stelvin
Sourced from a single vineyard this wine was created as a tribute to Ben Schild who began the family’s long association with winemaking and viticulture. The wine was fermented in open fermenters before being matured in a combination of new and old French, American and Hungarian oak for 18 months and then underwent a further 24 months maturation in bottle prior to release.
Dense black as night in colour with a dark red black tinged hue. Pronounced liquorice, black cherry and blackberry fruits drive the nose with plum, smoky vanillin cedar, black olive and blackpepper notes in tow. Rich, plush and possessing a voluminous feel, intense liquorice, blackberry and dark plum fruits saturate the full bodied palate. Lying underneath are elements of scorched earth, vanillin cedar and spicy pepper. Velvet like tannins possess some structural muscle. Concludes long, powerful and opulent.
Drink over next 5-6 years.
Picked and bunch-sorted by hand, berry-sorted by the destemmer, open-fermented, 5-7 days cold soak, 7-14-day ferment, 18-24 months in French oak (30% new). A high quality wine ticking all the boxes, especially length and balance. Drink by 2042.
