Winemaker's Notes:

Since its inaugural release in 1979 this piece of liquid history has become one of the most sought after and collectable wines throughout the world.

Offers ripe berry and raspberry fruits with savory and spice notes - a complex mid-weight palate and elegant lifted finish. This wine is our premium marque; its elegance, intensity and complexity on the palate reflect the depth of flavor that can be achieved from vines planted 150 years ago. They are a living treasure, and a single vineyard release from vines of this age is a rare feat in the wine world, and one of which we are immensely proud.

Enjoy now - or cellar for another 20 years plus if you have the patience.
