RP2 Back Vintage Case (6 x 750mls)

$ 249.00

We invite you to experience the evolution of this label with us and are pleased to be able to offer some back vintages of the RP2 (red blend) from our cellar.  We hope these wines offer insight into the progression as the vines have aged and our knowledge of them on our site has grown.

2 x 2017 RP2 (750mls)

55% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault

The 2017 vintage was a rather cool vintage.  It proved to be the first real test as to whether we were going to ripen these late season varieties on our site in cooler years. The RP2 is perhaps a slightly leaner, lighter wine than both the 16 and 15 but shows loads of complexity, courtesy of a beautiful cooler climate spice and savoury edge that run through the wine and combines so well with bright primary fruit.

2 x 2016 RP2 (750mls)

50% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Cinsault

2016 was a rather warm, dry,  extremely compact season where the window for picking at the grapes optimum maturity level was very small. We see the 2016 RP2 as a great middle ground between the 17 and 15.  It has the spice and complexity shown in the 17 (although not to the same degree) but a little more weight and masculinity that we see in the 2015.

2 x 2015 RP2 (750mls)

65% Grenache, 20% Shiraz, 15% Mourvedre

2015 was considered a fairly warm season however sugar accumulated remained quite slow allowing a longer time for fruit to ripen on the vine. This is perhaps the deepest, darkest most brooding example of this blend to date thanks to this long, drawn out growing season discussed above.  It is a masculine wine of structure, depth and concentration but perhaps lacks the perfume and elegance of the 16 and 17 wines.
