VP is for Vintage Port (which we can not call by that name any longer, due to a deal being done with the Europeans).The VP is a blend of 92% Shiraz and 8% Touriga. The wine is much lighter than one normally associates with an Australian VP style (normally dense and saturated with colour). This wine is reminiscent of an aged Portuguese Vintage Port that is semi translucent in colour – now approaching a Tawny Port visually. Bright red colour with brick red hue. The nose is very fine, filled with aroma of marzipan, aged brandy spirit, plump dried raisins, prunes and liquorice all sorts. The tannins are fine and dry – again Portuguese in character. Flavours of raisins, old brandy (beautifully balanced) and liquorice all sorts. Excellent length and depth with dry finish.
