This is a vintaged account of the Hoffmann’s oldest vines yielded from the bountiful and substantial 2015 growing season. It’s a decadent wine which feels both lavish and congenial and whilst immediately offering enjoyment is pleading for some peaceful cellar time. It should be fascinating to ponder over the coming decades.

A composition of our most poignant and superlative casks and a celebration of the birth of Fraser's cheeky and joyous twin boys Mahé & Ribo. Procured from the two oldest sections within the Hoffmann families ‘Dallwitz’ vineyard, the vines are both planted on their own roots in 1927 & the oldest vines between 1888 & 1912.

These 15 Burgundian Pièces were carefully assembled and bottled amidst the spring of 2016 after enduring their 79 week elevage. Bottles were filled without filtration, fining or sparging (the removal of naturally occurring oxygen & C02) and all transfer’s were completed via gravity prior to bottling.

Deliciously dark ruby in colour with red currants, blackberries blueberries, dark plums, cassis, and licorice. Fragrant, floral and spice driven in style, this is vibrant and fresh wine with a subtle savouriness that is complimented by fine silky tannins.
