About

91

"Deep ruby. Heady, pungent bouquet evokes cherry compote, redcurrant, pipe tobacco and loamy earth. Sweet, penetrating and expressive on the palate, offering a suave blend of richness and energy to its energetic red and dark berry flavors. Finishes sweet and very long, with lingering spice and cherry notes." (05/12)

Editor's Choice
"Powerfully built and well balanced, this has aromas of cherry, red currant, spice, dried cheese and earth, giving way to flavors of red plum, wild berry, buttery oak and vanilla. Drink now or cellar it through 2017. -MS" (12/12)

Product Description:

Wine:
"The great wines come from limited areas, and the Loncomilla Valley with its soft hills stretching to the Coastal Mountains, creates unique conditions for red wine viticulture using the concept of dry farming, where the rain is essential for development. At Gillmore we continue to study our vineyards to ensure a good balance in our grapes, and this, along with an artisanal winemaking technique in our cellar reflects the spirit of the project. Our goal is to maximize the potential of the fruit with the dry coastal climate conditions, giving unique wines, author wines, which carry the essence of the Valley." - Winery

Producer:
"Gillmore is a family business created in 1990 by Francisco Gillmore. In a joint venture with his daughter and son-in-law, they have developed the project to give distinct character to the Gillmore wines. Our philosophy is to produce great wines in the Loncomilla Valley, wines that can open the mind. These are autor wines which you can appreciate in the concentrated aromas and flavours." - Winery
