David Franz – NV Larrikin VI – Sixth Bottling

$50.00 inc. GST

The Larrikin VI lives the spirit of the philosophy;
Why the Blend…?? It tastes good! Why non Vintage…?? It tastes good! Why do it at all… refer to the previous answers!! The Larrikin V is the product of a lot of left of centre thinking some seriously good fruit and a scant regard for convention. The bottom line is (whimsy aside) it’s SERIOUS because it’s GOOD… But it’s not ‘Rocket Science’, it’s a bottle of wine. END OF STORY!!

Description

Production:

A fusion of 18.5% 2016 – 32.72% 2014 – 9.14% 2013 – 7.81% 2012 – 2.69% 2011 – 23.6% 2010 – 5.54% 2009 to 2003 vintages Fully co-fermented blend of Shiraz 61%, Mataro 12%, Grenache 10%, Cabernet Sauvignon 9%, Petit Verdot 7% 4560 bottles blended and committed to glass in 2017

Colour:

Deep inky black with intense purple fringes lifting to hints of crimson brick on the meniscus.

Nose:

Initially the nose is filled with fat rich aromas of spicy yeast buns redolent with plums. Soaring over these rich base notes is a heady combination of red berry compote layered with cassis and red currant finishing with a black boy rose petal perfume.

Palate:

Rich yeasty plum pudding studded with preserved red berries and raspberry finishing notes. An intense mouth filling richness that lingers on and on combined with the intense fruit sweetness lift and project the flavours throughout the whole palate. The gentle suggestion of coconut vanilla from the American oak leaves the palate clean and uncluttered. Bold but beautifully balanced… not for those seeking a shy and retiring wine!!!

The liquid offerings of Barossa gold. Unique small batch parcels of Barossa wine; hand wrought with passion to your glass from our vines…As you may have gathered, I am very passionate about the fruit I produce and wines I make. You can savour my wines in the knowledge that they have been nurtured first for a year on the vines then crafted for a few months in the winery before 4 years maturation in wood and the bottle. Each bottle of wine is carefully hand printed and wrapped before being placed in a hand printed carton then sent out into the wide world to find their way to you.
