If you are looking for a specific wine vintage, please contact us for confirmation before purchase. ‘White Boar’ is our version of Amarone, a style of wine made in the Italian region of Valpolicella using 3 indigenous varieties which are picked and then dried on racks before being fermented. We have adapted the process so that we cut the canes of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon vines to sever the water and nutrient supply from the vine, so that the leaves die and fall off and the fruit dries and concentrates on the vine. We pick the grapes after about 10-12 days and ferment them slowly and painfully – the sugar content after this period of drying is pretty high. The wine is fermented to dryness however. We mature the wine in old larger format barrels and then bottle it. White Boar is a long lived wine. You'll experience a nose of well-worn leather, dark fruit, dark chocolate, with a full soft palate and fine grained tannins.
