Tasting Notes

Double Barrel is finished in aged whiskey barrels for a richer, deeper, and smoother taste.

The Double Barrel range is crafted from superior quality grapes which are first matured in traditional wine barrels. Then, using our unique Double Barrel technique, they are finished in aged whisk(e)y barrels to build additional layers of complexity.

AROMA & PALATE


Vibrant cassis aromas with mint, dark olive and caramel notes.

Tannins are evident at first, before giving way to a mid palate filled with ripe cassis, olive tapenade and complex briary hints.

FOOD MATCHES


Roasted rack of lamb with chargrilled eggplant.
