Elegance and austerity - like a character from a Jane Austen novel. Our Superstition Rieslings are made with an eye for longevity; they will not reveal their full story and potential at first meeting, instead they offer a glimpse of what the patient wine lover can expect with the benefit of time. 12-36 months bottle age will reward - with potential to age 10+ years.
This release of our Nirvana 2018 has demanded of us the indulgence of time in the barrel to allow the richness and intensity of this wine to develop and integrate with judiciously selected oak. Dark and brooding we know this one is a cracker but try and leave it for a few years (IF you can!) to reap the rewards of cellar age. One stunning beast!
Drawing from the very best in our Boot Room Barrel Store, winemaker Emma Walker hand selected the best three barrels of the entire shed to craft this exclusive release. A worthy tribute, crafted with an eye to the long game, this is a red for the BIG occasion with the structure, weight and elegance to reward many years careful cellaring...if you can resist the allure of its powerful fruit weight and luxurious French oak in youth.
This wine defines charisma! Juicy plum and dark cherry fruits combine with licks of mint and fennel that overlay a slatey-granite earthiness. It’s a deep, dark, dangerously intense cabernet with integrated tannins and dense dark fruits wound up in savoury spice.
