Springfield Estate The Work of Time' Bordeaux Blend 2010

£18.95 inc VAT per bottle
Time ‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___Ä_¡ The lost element in today‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___Ä_s winemaking, can be so precious ‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___Ä_¡ yet it is free. It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites
and took 9 years to reach a level of maturity which we felt comfortable to use for the maiden vintage (2001). The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts (true to our ancient custom) and left for 5 weeks on their skins. A slow 2 years of barrel maturation followed and a further 4 years of bottle maturation. Finally, we released this wine rich, classic and complex from age ‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___Ä_¡ of vines and wine. This long wait, justified only by our passion, does bear fruit. It‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___Ä_s called-‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___â_The Work of Time‰Û¡_Ç___Ä___ÄñÔ. Quite deep and concentrated on the nose, it opens up on the palate to reveal crisp cassis fruit with smoky edges and a hint of green pepper all hung on a ripe firm structure. Excellent balance.
