Legends of the Labyrinth Theseus 2014

A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Purple in colour,
showing some maturation. The nose is
forthcoming with blackberry, black cherry and
cassis. The palate is full and juicy with soft, fine,
well integrated tannins. The wine shows great
depth with a long, lingering finish.

A rich, full bodied blend which deserves the best
cuts of meat, including Fillet Steak and Saddle of
Lamb Saddle of Lamb with fresh Rosemary, roast
potatoes and a selection of summer vegetables.

Theseus, the mythical King of Athens who travelled widely in
search of adventure was most famously known for the slaying of
the Minotaur in the labyrinth of Crete. He was assisted by
Ariadne, Dark Lady of the Labyrinth, who later married Dionysus,
god of wine (Bacchus - Roman). This wine, a rich and subtle blend
of five varietals, has been produced to give an intense and
unforgettable experience - a true "Legend of the Labyrinth".

about the harvest: 

The wine was produced from handpicked grapes
from our premier vineyards.

in the cellar : 

Two pump overs
were done per day, adding to colour, richness
and tannins. The different grape varietals were
fermented separately with extended maceration
on skins after fermentation. Only the best barrels
were selected for this wine. The wine was aged
for 24 months in 80% new and 20% second fill
300L French oak barrels. Wine was stabilized
and bottled in May 2016.
