Tasting Notes:

2014: Beautiful seductive interplay of spice and red and black berry fruits on both the nose and palate. The mouth is succulent and packed with black cherry, blueberry and plum. Adding to its complexity is a notable violet hint and inky depth. 2013: Beautiful seductive interplay of spice and red and black berry fruits on both the nose and palate. The mouth is succulent and packed with black cherry, blueberry and plum. Complex, layered, rich and powerful without being chunky or aggressive. Restrained use of oak and deliciously long with a finish that lingers. 2012: Alluring spicy aromatic overlay to dark berry and plum fruit with blackcurrant leaf and hint of cracked black pepper and violet. Ample turned earth and tobacco leaf notes too.

A vintage collection Gift Box showcasing three spectacular Optima vintages: 2014, 2013 and 2012.

Grapes were hand picked in the early morning, placed in lug boxes and transported in refrigerated trucks to the cellar. The grapes were then sorted on a double-sorting table.

Malolactic fermentation took place in 225ℓ new French oak barrels and 10000ℓ wooden tanks. The wines were made and aged separately for 18 months in 225ℓ French oak barrels (35% new oak). The wines were blended and aged for a further 6 months in barrel and tank and bottle-matured for 24 months before release.

After the cold-soaking, fermentation started and lasted for about 20 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in 225l new French oak barrels and 10000l wooden tanks.
