Mission Hill - Legacy - Oculus 2013 - 1.5L Magnum

Mission Hill - Legacy - Oculus 2013 - 1.5L Magnum
Mission Hill Family Estate

An Oculus was first used by the Romans in buildings like the Pantheon - a window in a dome or wall to the outside.

At Mission Hill, an Oculus provides the only natural light into the underground barrel cellar, blasted out of volcanic rock that is otherwise hidden from the world.

This complex Bordeaux-style wine is the result of meticulous selection in the vineyard estate with grapes that have been specifically nurtured for this rare wine. Hand-sorted grapes are gravity-filled into specially constructed French oak fermenters before gently laying the wine to rest in individual barrels.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Firm and graceful, this polished red delivers a core of black currant, dark plum, and fig layered on top of black liquorice and dusty earth details, all lending to the flavour's tension and traction. Despite the wine's dense, dark, and brooding personality, it is graceful and elegant with restrained oak influence and seamless integration of all elements.
Production Notes
Fermentation and extended maturation in small French oak fermenters. A small portion fermented in a concrete fermenter.
