A very concentrated style of fortified red wine. The Swan Valley Shiraz in this
wine is from very old, non irrigated, low yielding vines and is hand picked
when extremely ripe and raisined. The resulting wine is aged in barrels for
many years and is then blended with much older reserve material. A portion of
Jack Mann’s original *solera concentrated over several decades is included in
this blend (2%). The bulk of the solera is Corin’s own from the eighties and
nineties. An extremely rich, complex fortified wine exhibiting characters of
dark chocolate, coffee, liquorice, raisin and some earthier savoury notes.
This bottling is the entire solera and therefore will never be repeated.
