The 2016 Bremerton Lagrein has aromas of dark fruit and spice with the palate showing hints of dark bitter chocolate and plum with an earthy edge and undertones of aniseed. The palate is complemented by fine long tannins.
This individual parcel of Lagrein was fermented in a small open top fermenter to allow excellent extraction of colour and flavour. Aged 18 months in seasoned French oak barriques. The best individual barrels were then selected to create this limited release wine.

The rich flavours of Lagrein match well with red meat or robust entrées.
