One of the new world's great first growths, Command's grapes are grown to a choice block, from vines planted in the early 1900s. Growing on rich river silt soils and red brown earth over limestone, blessed by a Mediterranean climate, with cropping levels maintained to less than four tonnes per hectare. The strength and resilience of these vines shines effortlessly in the quality of what is in the bottle. Grapes are hand picked, chilled and vinified in open top concrete fermenters, treated to hand pump overs and cap submerging with oak header boards for eight days, followed by transfer to oak for completion of ferments, malolactic and thirty months in exclusively new French and American oak puncheons.
Very dark purple with bright magenta hues. Showing lovely seductive chocolate, violet and delicious oak characters. Big, ripe and powerful, but ultimately soft and seductive, blackberry meaty dark chocolate fruit, pronounced tannin structure and integrated oak, velvety texture and rich plum, dark chocolate and pepper flavours that echo beautifully as the finish sails on and on.
