This bold Shiraz is the richest of the reds at Longleat. Only estate grown fruit is used to produce this wine. Aged in a mix of American and French oak for 12 months allowing it to mellow and tannins to soften. Drink now or comfortably age for eight years plus. Develop complexity and tannins will soften further with age. Sealed under screw cap for freshness and consistency.
All-spice, ripe plum and black pepper. A rich and full wine, with a firm tannin structure. Enjoy with roast meats and rich sauces or your favourite game.
•38 year old vines grown on a shoot positioned trellis
•Slow fermentation allows maximum contact with skins to extract full flavour
