Deep red colour.
Deep aromas of red fruits, with notes of coconut, chocolate and tobacco.
In the mouth it's fruity, silky, balanced, voluptuous, with soft tannins.
A complex and elegant wine, with an extraordinary after taste.
Comes in a seriously heavy bottle with a metal label…the presentation really matches the quality of this stunning wine.
Ageing in Oak Barrels: 15 months (100% in French Oak Barrels).
Ideally, serve at 18º C.
Can be enjoyed now with some aeration/decanting or has an ageing potential of 10 years or more.
This wine became had a lot of publicity locally (and around the world on Fox Sports, Sky Sports etc..) when former Swansea City manager Brendan Rogers visited our shop to choose a wine for Sir Alex Ferguson for the visit of Manchester United during the 2011-2012 season. See the article from the South Wales Evening Post here
"The Special Blend is where global consultant, Michel Rolland, has the greatest influence. It’s a blend of equal parts Malbec and Merlot with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, ripe, fleshy fruit, attractive oak integration and cassis and blueberry fruit. Stylish winemaking from Patagonia."

Full-Bodied and Rich Red Wines
Full-bodied wines typically have more tannin, higher alcohol, and dark fruit flavours such as blackcurrant. Since these wines have so much pigment, they are higher in anthocyanin which has shown positive benefits to cardiovascular health. As far as flavour, these wines are the biggest on the spectrum and thus, pair with equally bold flavoured food.
