Winemakers Comments

This release of the Duke of Wellington is principally a blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Touriga Nacional. The wine has been aged for several years in seasoned puncheons. There is something to be said for the slightly ‘forgotten’ wine sitting in the warm part of the cellar which is rarely visited outside of vintage. Though we diligently sampled this wine to ensure it was tracking along well, this tawny has largely been left alone to age over time. Fortified after decent time on skins to allow flavour and tannin accumulation whilst retaining sweetness to add generosity to the finish. This blend is a vibrant and racy style of tawny, with a touch of rancio and vibrant acidity to balance the sweetness and weight of the alcohol. - Jules Ashmead
