The Methuselah is one behemoth of a wine bottle. This beast contains 6L of wine and comes in its own wooden box. The top is under cork which is then wax dipped to further seal it. These are stored lying down to ensure the cork stays moist and the wine remains good to drink.
Savoury and immensely concentrated, the 2014 Limited Release Pinot Noir displays earthy and dried spice notes. This wine is exquisite!
Tasting Notes: This is sweetly fruited and impressively complex on the nose showing dried cherry, plum, vanillin oak, cake spice, and dark mushroom characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is wonderfully rounded and expansive. It is delectable and opulent with bottle matured complexity and velvety tannins, finishing gorgeously long and gratifying.
Great for large dinner parties and also for the perfect gift.
