On Friday evening we released a wine that really breaks new ground. As if our Sijnn project wasn’t ground breaking enough we’ve gone rogue with a new wine project. Choosing the best barrels from three vintages and gradually blended them, layering them up to something super complex and beguiling.
Vega Sicilia, one of Spain’s most iconic wineries, have used this traditional multi-vintage approach to create their Unico Reserva Especial from which I drew some inspiration for this wine. Available from Great Domaines at R4295 (on allocation) for the curious.
The super concentrated low yielding vines of Malgas can handle the extended barrel maturation required for this style of wine with ease. We selected the best barrels from three different vintages to create the Free Reign First Edition. More information and the tasting notes are available here.
This is a wine that is worth digging deep into your pockets to experience. The Free Reign is available in wooden boxes of 3 or 6 at R800 per bottle with free delivery for 3 bottles or more.
