A staggering concoction from the towering tour de force that is Donovan Rall. The wine is made from a blend of 46% Petit Verdot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot from estate-grown fruit. The grapes are picked as early as possible and rushed to the cellar where it is not crushed only destemmed, hand sorted and transferred to tank. The wine spends 22 months in 225l french oak barrels of which 50% is new.

Huge and muscular and surprisingly elegant given its depth of dark brooding fruit. An intriguing nose of wild berries, blackberry compot, graphite and other crunchy stuff. These delights follow through onto a palate with layers of graphite, rosemary, rocks, lashings of black fruits and countless other things! The Petit Verdot complements the characteristics of the other varietals creating a wine that has lots of cassis and spicy, leather notes and a firm tannin structure with the potential to evolve beautifully over the next 10 years. After decanting the wine evolves beautifully showing notes of crushed-rock minerality amongst the restrained layered and complex fruit.
