NV Larrikin VI - Sixth Bottling

The Larrikin VI lives the spirit of the philosophy;
Why the Blend…?? It tastes good! Why non Vintage…?? It tastes good! Why do it at all… refer to the previous answers!! The Larrikin V is the product of a lot of left of centre thinking some seriously good fruit and a scant regard for convention. The bottom line is (whimsy aside) it’s SERIOUS because it’s GOOD… But it’s not ‘Rocket Science’, it’s a bottle of wine. END OF STORY!!

Colour:

Deep inky black with intense purple fringes lifting to hints of crimson brick on the meniscus.

Nose:

Initially the nose is filled with fat rich aromas of spicy yeast buns redolent with plums. Soaring over these rich base notes is a heady combination of red berry compote layered with cassis and red currant finishing with a black boy rose petal perfume.

Palate:

Rich yeasty plum pudding studded with preserved red berries and raspberry finishing notes. An intense mouth filling richness that lingers on and on combined with the intense fruit sweetness lift and project the flavours throughout the whole palate. The gentle suggestion of coconut vanilla from the American oak leaves the palate clean and uncluttered. Bold but beautifully balanced… not for those seeking a shy and retiring wine!!!
