2007 MGA Fortune


"An iron fist in a velvet glove".

Beginning to show some discolouration around the rim, this wine still exhibits an inky, black core.

On the nose it displays the most complex aromas; dark chocolate, toffee, blood orange, toasted with well-integrated oaky notes; finishing on hints of wet forest floor and truffle.

On the palate what surprises is the structure with velvety tannins just starting to soften up. A good acid line to keep it fresh and vibrant and a powerful, opulent profile to remind you this wine is a true heavy-weight.

The flavours range from blackberry jam and prunes to earthy, chocolate and tobacco notes. The finish is long and elegant.

This MGA Fortune still has great cellaring potential; another 8-10 years could reveal the elegance and finesse this wine has been hiding under its iron armour. Drink it now if you want both the complexity from the ageing in bottle and the power of this untamed beast.

Decanting 20-30 minutes before serving is recommended. Drink at 18ºC.
