Sedlescombe Organic Vineyard - Corymbus 2014 - Case of 6
This 2014 vintage is a hot climate style of red delivered in our cool northerly climate.
This Rondo, Regent and Dornfelder blend is certainly one of our top reds! Sedlescombe has made some excellent reds over the years, including the first English red to win an International award (Sedlescombe 2011 Regent).
They hand pick only the best bunches for this red and then de-stalk and crush and ferment ‘on-the-pulp’ for 10 days. This wine then undergoes a malo-lactic ferment before infusion with oak for 5 months.
TASTING NOTE: Deep purple, almost black with violet edge. Young nose of green pepper and roasted coffee. Fresh black fruit flavours reminiscent of Blackberry, Blackcurrant, Blueberries and some Black Olives. Medium to full-bodied, exquisitely balanced with a trace of smokey oak character and a dash of velvet tannin. A great red to go with those luxuriant weightier dishes, including medium cheeses, and even dark chocolate. Quite complex. 12% vol
