’58 Guineas’ was the reported price Sir Robert Walpole (First Lord of the Treasury) paid in 1713, to smuggle twenty hogsheads of claret into Britain, where it was highly prized by London’s fashionable wealthy elite. Made from grapes grown on clay/limestone hillsides, vinified traditionally in temperature controlled stainless tanks at between 28 and 30 degrees respectively for about 15 days with a 7 day maceration, resulting in youthful colour and intensity. The wine is unoaked.
