Winemaker's Notes:

Filled with floral, herbal, black raspberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas. This wine is the direct production of grapes from Sugarloaf Mountain and Coombsville - both vineyards based on slopes - in the former's case mainly south facing.

About World's End:

Described by Robert Parker as a 'visionary, self-styled revolutionary' and the 'English winemaking guru,' Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the 'garage revolution' in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990's. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).
