All fruit was handpicked and 100% of the blend received a long maceration on skins. Maturation was for 20 months in 50% new fine-grained French Oak.

Deep rich red in colour, the nose is perfumed with perfectly ripened dark blackberry, licorice and cassis fruit. The palate is firm and full bodied, with fleshy cassis and blackberry fruit. The finish is long and textured with fine grainy grape tannins. This wine showing the structure and completeness typical of ‘The Tally’. Made to cellar with confidence for 30 years.


Dried herb aromas: savoury and earthy. Firm and tight and grippy, a very big wine, with impressive structure and authority. Masses of tannins, firm and gripping. A huge wine which needs a lot of cellaring. An outstanding Tally. (50/50 new and 1 year-old barrels) 20 OCT 2015 Drink 2019–2042

Hand-picked grapes from the Dead Morris Vineyard were given extended maceration post-ferment, then taken to the best French barrels money can buy (50% new) for 20 months maturation. The complexity of the bouquet is striking, with black fruits, spice, earth and cedar, and a complete wine in the mouth, at once supple yet firm thanks to exemplary texture and structure. The savoury finish and aftertaste is pure cabernet.
