2015 The Cygnet

2015 The Cygnet

The Cygnet is no ordinary Shiraz, with a balance of power & elegance the aim.  It’s dark, very dark. Liquorice root, anise herbal notes, cedar oak & savoury tannins. This is a wine to sit on - it will age beautifully for ten years or more & give you hours of joy once the bottle is opened. As the punchier notes subside you’ll see some beautiful sweet fruit in the blackberry zone, a hint of menthol too.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Hand-picked bushvine vineyard, destemmed into demi-muids for wild fermentation and extended maceration on skins until mlf completed, the juice run off and the skins pressed in a hand-operated basket press, blended after 2 years in demi-muids. An extremely complex and powerful wine with black fruits, spices, oak, tannins, earth and sea spray moulded into a single flame of flavour. Halliday Wine Companion 2020
