 NV | McLaren Vale | Fortified 

Made from a secret blend of McLaren Vale fruit since 1981, each year only 1,000 bottles are bottled from the historic master blend, making this a rare and treasured gift, to be appreciated over time.

Tasting Notes:
Fresh lifted nose of spicy fruitcake, raisins, and dark fruits. Integrated vanillin oak and mocha from long term oak maturation.

Round and voluptuous with intense spice notes balanced with a nutty and creamy palate. Integrated spirit is balanced with fruit intensity and a refreshing acidity runs through the length of the palate. Subtle mocha and vanilla notes intensify on the finish and match the nutty characters of the wine giving great length and power.

Sourced from selected vineyards in McLaren vale consisting of both Shiraz and Grenache. Selected for their robust flavour and structure for ageing potential.

Fruit is harvested at optimal ripeness and crushed to open fermenters in which it is pumped over and undergoes primary fermentation. Careful monitoring of the fermentation process is carried out and at the optimal balance of sugar, it is pressed off skins and fortified by using a neutral brandy spirit. It is then aged in large format and hogs head barrels.

Well, what a delightful surprise! They only bottle 1000 of these at a time and i can see why!... although it looks thick, its medium bodied with the traditional Christmas cake flavour, but then you get this Treacle flavour that makes it unique. Event the bottle is cute as and will be using this for upcycling
