2021 Nota Bene 1.5L Magnum
40% Cabernet Sauvignon
17% Cabernet Franc
1% Petit Verdot
Our 2021 Nota Bene is a masterpiece of winemaking. It is hand-harvested, gently destemmed, and a true labour of love. Fermented with wild yeast and aged for 18 months in lightly toasted French oak barriques, it is a gorgeous blend of 42% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Petit Verdot.
This vintage captures the heat of the 2021 season with remarkable finesse, offering ripe red fruits, elegant tannins, and a long, satisfying finish. When you open a bottle, you will be greeted with intense raspberry and Morello cherry aromas, fresh blackberry and cassis notes and delicate hints of clove, spice, cedar, and sagebrush.
Nota Bene is a wine that rewards patience. It's meant to be savoured, not only now but also over time. As it gracefully evolves, it offers tertiary aromas of dried fruit, leather, and tobacco that complement the fresh fruit notes. Vintages of Nota Bene possess remarkable cellaring potential as they sustain the vibrancy of their fruit even beyond 15 years. Enjoy every sip, take your time, and let Nota Bene captivate your senses for years to come.
