Crown Rewards: Members earn 4500 points per bottle*
Origin: Barossa Valley, South Australia
Tasting Note: Powerful yet refined aromas of rich dark fruits such as satsuma plum, blackberry and mulberry fill the bouquet complimented by cacao bean and roast espresso. Alluring spices such as cinnamon and liquorice balanced by savoury notes of wet earth and native eucalypt combine with added complexities. The palate possesses a rich concentration, balanced by round and soft tannins and enveloping mouthfeel.
The minute long flavours linger long after the wine has been swallowed. Held together with a tight tannin profile and generous yet proportionate oak and balanced acidity, the 2016 shows all the opulence and elegance of previous Laird’s, but with a complexity, precision and prominence that will make sure it ages gracefully for the next 30 - 50 years.
Cellaring: 30 - 50 years
Food/Dish: Mandarin Black Angus Beef Tenderloin at Silks
