This is Mistletoe’s selection for our Wine of the Year 2019.
Read James Halliday’s appraisal of this wine here.
Only our third wine ever to wear the Grand Reserve mantle.
Single vineyard wine sourced from just 10 very low cropped rows on the Mistletoe Home Vineyard.
LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE.
Hand harvested before daylight ( pickers used individual head lights to see what they are doing) to beat the heat of the day getting into the bunches.
Traditional de-stemming and crushing was followed by small batch fermentation with approx. 10% whole bunches included.
Post ferment the wine was pressed to a combination of new and one year old French oak puncheons where it underwent 18 months maturation prior to bottling.
Intense,concentrated red and black fruit flavours abound on a beautifully balanced palate.
We are very proud of this wine.
Food match – Rare Roast rib of beef. Drink now to 2040.
A wine to share with your children and grand children rather than leave it to them.
