55% Merlot, 35% Syrah, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc
Célèbre has always had its own distinctive style as a bright, high-energy red with real concentration and a rich, mouth-filling texture. As a young wine, the 2014 is showing abundant aromatics with ripe blueberry, boysenberry and redcurrant notes meeting more exotic notes of star-anise.
Long, fine, savoury tannins across the palate and the bracken-like earthiness from the Cabernet portions builds complexity, while Syrah brings spice and fresh, balanced acidity to the finish. Bud burst was unusually early in 2014, and a settled spring resulted in a more solid fruit-set than we'd seen for a number of years.
Summer saw no extremes of heat thankfully, with timely rain in January when things were just starting to dry out – all in all, a benevolent season for the vines. Rain arrived in the last week of April, but thanks to the early bud burst we had been able to pick earlier than usual whilst still achieving the same desired hang time and full flavour ripeness.
