Only a few times a decade, when nature conspires, does the opportunity for a truly remarkable wine reveal itself. And then it’s in our hands. Quite literally. To nurture nature, by hand, in a series of perfect steps from vineyard to bottle. To use our knowledge of every last rock, vine and vineyard row to transform nature’s rare gift of the perfect vintage into wine so definitive of its time and place that it stands alone and above, as an inarguable statement. It is a wine that leaves nothing left to say. Which is why we called it ‘The Last Word’. And on that, you have ours.
