2015 The Fifth Wave Imperial
Once a neglected Old Vine Garden in Lyndoch, The Fifth Wave vineyard was rejuvenated by Langmeil and in 1999 winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential of the Grenache from this unique vineyard and with tenacity convinced the owners to produce a straight varietal, in all likelihood the first time Grenache from this time honoured Old Vine Garden had been truly prized.
Colour: Light to medium depth crimson.
Aroma: Dark cherry and raspberry fruits mingle with sweet and white pepper spice and hints of vanilla add to the complexity.
Palate: Ripe, red berry and dark cherry flows onto the palate, melding into lovely sweet and briary spice. The finish lingers on a fruitful and spicy note with typical chalky yet fine tannins.
Cellaring: 2017 – 2025
