Deep dark crimson red. Wonderfully expressive when allowed to breathe, blackberries and dark cherry notes dominate while cassis, violets, mocha and cedary oak provide some influence. Finely structured wine although has great generosity and still quite rounded with juicy fruit flavours of mulberry and blackberry with hints of cassis, spice and oak all playing key roles. The palate shows elegance and length with fine, well integrated tannins. There is a lot of complexity of flavors yet the over all balance ensures a smooth lush style of wine that drinks well upon release.
95 Point Rated - Sam Kim Wine Orbit
"Gorgeously maturing and complex, the wine shows cassis, dried herb, cedar, warm spice and potpourri aromas on the nose. The concentrated palate has outstanding weight, wonderfully complemented by refined mouthfeel and fine chalky tannins. Sturdy and structured with layers of delectable flavours. At its best: now to 2030. $60.00. www.normanswines.com. Aug 2022."

The grapes were hand picked in small parcels and kept separate to ensure the best possible flavours were extracted from each parcel. The grapes were fermented in small open top fermenters and hand plunged daily. Once pressed the individual batches were left to mature in a combination of old and new French oak hogsheads. The best barrels were isolated from the rest of the blend for our Chais Clarendon release to be used for our Museum Release Series and spent up to 4 years in barrel before being bottled and aged further before release.
