Rampart 2015 Vintage Fortified
Story: The Rampart started off like any other regular wine, but when arriving at Pertaringa’s stronghold in McLaren Vale it gained strength and persistence through fortification. This 2015 Vintage Fortified is made from Shiraz and Grenache from McLaren Vale.
Vintage: Early winter in 2014 was wetter than usual and the period from August to early January was very dry with above-average temperatures. Following some rain and milder temperatures in January, the 2015 harvest started later that month and was quite condensed, resulting in some fabulous white and red wines.
Nose: The nose offers complex aromas of raspberries, plums, Christmas pudding, and an inviting brandy lift.
Palate: The palate is sweet and luscious with notes of red berries, mulberries, and a delectable blackforest cake chocolate finish.
Pairing: Try this fortified with a flourless chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and cherry compote.
Cellaring: Drink now to 2025
