Director’s Reserve 2019
Each cultivar was matured separately for up to 20 months in new French oak barrels and blended for the best quality result.
There is an intense deep dark garnet colour to this wine. Ripe blackcurrant, blueberry and dark cherry aromas are evident on the nose with hints of pencil shavings and cigar box. The palate is rich and powerful, with intense blackcurrant and dark blackberry notes. The tannins are firm and fine, with a structured mid-palate and a lingering finish of dried Italian herbs, cedar and tobacco leaf.
Drink now, but the wine will benefit from ageing for up to 15 years from vintage. Serve with Rib eye steak and bone marrow.
