Springfield Estate The Work of Time 2004

Springfield Estate The Work of Time 2004

It was our yearning to create a Bordeaux Blend, and so we planted the classic ingredients - Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot (Cabernet Sauvignon we already had).
Slowly these vineyards matured into steady reliable vines with concentrated fruit.
Nine long years later they have reached such an age that the quality warranted new barrels for maturation. Twenty four months of barrel maturation ticked by - a further 24 months bottle maturation before release - our 11 year old dream finally came true. Our patience rewarded in this "Work of Time". This traditional wine is unfiltered and unfined, which may deposit a sediment and might require decanting.
