2016 Artist Series Red Wine - Guardian Label

The 2016 vintage will be remembered as the "˜longest calendar vintage on record' since we were harvesting grapes for three-solid months. This allowed for some impressive hang time and resulted in a very ripe and rich wine with beautifully supple, elegant tannins.
