THE DUCK'S NUTS 2017
The 2017 vintage produced exceptional wines with distinctive varietal characters. The outstanding batch of the vintage was a Cabernet Sauvignon (72%) Petit Verdot (28%) blend. We allocated 2 new barrels to this blend as it is a bold and rich style capable of handling new oak. Sweet oak on the nose preclude a dense and generous palate. A style that has the tannin structure and complexity to be aged for 10+ years. We hope you enjoy this extremely small volume and rare release that we are very proud of.
Colour: Deep Ruby Red
Nose: Vibrant aromas red currants, fresh tobacco, ripe plums, bay leaves and cherry blossom with hints of aniseed.
Palate: Rich sweet fruits, currants, red cherries, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, and savoury spices. An elegant, full-bodied wine with a prominent tannin structure that leads to a textural dry and lingering finish.
Drink: 12-15 years
Residual Sugar: <0.5g per litre
