Tin Lids Fortified Grenache 2004


The Grenache was hand picked in 2004. The wine was fortified with 18 year old brandy spirit and with no timeframe in mind was left to mature and develop in French oak for 15 years until we thought it was just right. 

This wine has a rich, lingering flavour with notes of Christmas cake and silky toffee.

"A tawny to translucent red in colour, lovely spiced Christmas cake with generous plum. Brandy spirit has impact with the wine balanced in terms of fruit and spirit. There are some caramel tones to plum fruit with an oxidative, rancio like impact and incredible length to finish. A reminder of the sheer enjoyment that can come from well made fortified from old vine sites."
