Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot


Aptly named with a sense of humour – Hellburner was the name given to the notorious fire ships Drake unleashed in darkness upon an unsuspecting Spanish Armada or as Duncan described “the first weapon of mass destruction”. This too could cause mass destruction if not consumed with care. A blend of Cabernet from 2012 and Petit Verdot from 2013 fermented on the skins of Malbec. Stopped at around 100gms rs and fortified to nearly 20% alc. Lusciously sweet, utterly delicious and dangerously enjoyable!


Winery notes
"The resulting wine is our modern interpretation of a classic wines from Oporto. By no means traditional in creation the resulting wine exhibits everything great about vintage port in a new world setting. Aromas of fresh and dried fruit with hints of brown spice create an almost ‘Christmas pudding’ like aroma. The palate is beautifully balanced with the residual sugar, acidity and alcohol all complementing each other. The wine is rich and concentrated with great length."
