MAN O WAR IRONCLAD BORDEAUX BLEND 2020 750ML

$46.99

Epic lift, dark dense savoury and complex the perfume of the Ironclad unfurls from the glass. The palate is a similarly complex, a deep and mysterious character with layers of flavour from black berry, cassis, exotic spice, graphite, mushroom and a touch of salt liquorice…fresh in its acid profile and with a good firm handshake the Ironclad is a spectacular wine

Description

Composed of a selection of over 20 different vineyard sites planted in the five traditional varieties of Bordeaux the Ironclad is a careful selection of the very best fruit from the vintage. As with all our vineyards the fruit is carefully hand harvested and then sorted again in the winery before stem removal and fermentation of whole berries. Only pumped over twice a day the extraction is careful and can continue for over 30 days. Once the perfect balance has been achieved the wines are pressed directly to barrel and remain on gross lees for 20 months undergoing a natural malolactic in the Spring. After ageing the wines are then selected for blending into the Ironclad.
