A blend of late ripening spicy red varieties.

Deep red with purple hue, this wine has a sweet aroma of ripe mulberry fruit, dried citrus peel and some toffee oak. The palate has more savoury fruit, lightly spiced with some black pepper and star anise notes. There is good length of fruit with some drying tannins to finish.

Description

The Story of Romanesque

Romanesque is a style of architecture and art that appeared during the ‘Dark Ages’ of Europe, following the fall of the Roman Empire. Although solid and balanced, the style is an attempt to copy (clumsily or otherwise) the great achievements of Rome.

Yes, I (Bob) am the ‘barbarian’ trying to emulate the fine, stylish wines of northern Italy!

Our “Romanesque” is a blend of late red varieties in the style of the aromatic red wines of the Italian Alps. Medium bodied, high acid and tannins with a tight aromatic finish.

The blend began in 2005 with Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Touriga Francesca but we are now introducing Aglianico and Lagrein to the blend.
