MANZANOS 1961 750ML
This 1961 wine was discovered by family member Victor Manzanos when he unearthed a fantastically old cache of bottles. He decided to rebottle, recork and relabel the wine. The wine is perfect, spending 3 years in French oak and then having laid perfectly untouched since being bottled in the mid-1960’s.
Extremely evolved with the tertiary notes of roasted black coffee. Chewy, dense, with an almost oily thick texture it is still rich and broth-like, but retains a refreshing zing of acidity to balance it out and keep it fresh. Black cherry fruit comes to the fore over time, along with pepper spice, liquorice and a light vanilla relief. Light chalky tannins are still evident.
