'Single Barrel' SV Gisborne Lagrein 2014
LIMIT TO 1 BOTTLE PER ORDER PLEASE Northern Italy comes calling as well! Dark, black fruited with a dash of dark chocolate and coffee.
Back in 1526 there was an uprising in what is now known as Alto Adige. One of the demands was that the locals should be allowed to drink Lagrein, which at that time, was only to be consumed by nobility, the courts and the church. This grape variety may be unknown to us here in New Zealand but in Alto Adige it has been revered for centuries. This fruit was hand harvested on Thursday 27 March 2014 and trucked to Auckland for vinification. We had 460kg, so that gave us a barrel and a bit. The wine stayed in barrel until Wednesday 27 May 2015 and was bottled on Thursday 11 June 2015. We got 270 bottles. This wine is rare!
Colour: Dark and brooding. A dense core runs to a red/purple rim.
Bouquet: Dark, black fruited with a dash of dark chocolate and coffee.
Palate: Lagrein is reported to be a tannic variety. We agree! In its youth this wine is dense and tightly wound and will uncoil with age.
We think that this wine will cellar pretty well.
