In Scotland, The Laird refers to the Lord of the Manor. There couldn't be a more apt description for this remarkable wine, one of the finest to have come from the fabled Barossa Valley in Australia which Robert Parker awarded an extraordinary 100 points to. This is even more impressive when you consider how difficult a year 2008 was, with record heat waves decimating the vines. It is amazing that such a special wine can still be created under such difficult circumstances.
The wine is rich and complex with perfectly judged tannin and divine balance with a level of oak flavour and integration once thought impossible. The nose on its own is one of the most intense experiences imaginable.
The 2008 Laird is truly a testament to the mastery of Malcolm Seppelt and his patch of dirt (the 5 precious acres of vines on which this wine was born). Parker describes the wine as: "An extraordinary array of creme de cassis and black plum-based aromas with underlying chocolate box, licorice, exotic spice, oolong tea and clove hints with a touch of earthy loam. Richly textured, dense and with a provocative meaty/earthy/savory, the palate is complex and layered revealing menthol and ripe black fruit notes interplaying with firm, velvety tannins through to a very long, opulent and harmonious finish".
