2018 Foundation Black Box (3 Pack)
This 3 Pack offering includes a Right Bank Bordeaux inspired wine with a merlot base and a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon.
This blend produces a merlot of extraordinary density, with rich, chewy tannins. Holding the promise of a long evolution in bottle. It is balanced, juicy and approachable. Foundation is aged in 40% new thin staved 22mm tight grain French oak Taransaud barrels.
Our merlot vineyard provides small berries and clusters, which produce highly aromatic and well-structured fruit, perfect for our intentions. This matched with the lean soils help to produce intense, age-worthy wine with a complex fruit and mineral layer.
