When the original proprietor of Branson wines, Malcolm Aspden, passed away, the winery and property were purchased by Two Hands in 2001, who are now overseeing the wines which are made side by side with their own wines by the same winemaker, Matt Wenk. With all the waiting done for you at no additional cost, this limited Museum Release is being offered at an exceptional price. The wine is in top form for drinking right now or over the next few years. It will benefit from a decant.

‘A Rich Lavish Barossa Shiraz that’s overflowing with flavour and offers Superb drinking over the next 2-3 years’

Totally opaque inky black colour with dark red black hue. Showing outstanding intensity, aromas of ripe blackberry, liquorice and dark chocolates waft from the glass in exuberant fashion followed by some vanillin oak and spice. Decadently rich and opulent the palate has a supple silky feel with ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark chocolate flavours saturating the mouth overlaying some vanillin oak and spice. Outstanding concentration and power. Velvet smooth tannins with very long aftertaste of liquorice, dark chocolate, vanillin oak and spice.
Drink over the next 2-3 years (2014-2017).
