A celebration of these two new Reserve Releases, bundled together for a limited time offer. Powerful, structured and impressive - these two will not disappoint; extended barrel maturation complements the intense fruit weight that both these wines carry. The 2018 Black Magic Woman will cast a spell on you and the Nirvana will elevate your senses.
The last release of our 2018 Reserve Red Wines, the 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.
95 POINTS & RED STAR VALUE WINE - 2021 HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
A powerfully elegant wine displaying restraint and minerality with wonderfully regional pure citrus fruit profile - lemon zest and lime juice alongside elements of grandma's bathpowder at play in the aromatics. This is a wine to lay down and revisit with time - a grand dame of the Riesling persuasion.
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.
