Godolphin by Ben Glaetzer 2005
The name Godolphin has been linked with excellence in many fields, including politics, education and literature, and we are using the same ideals to make this wine. The label echoes the Ancient Egyptian Ankh symbol (pronunciatin: onk). Historically the ankh symbolised sunrise, regeneration, regrowth and renewal.
The wine is a seamless fusion of two varieties, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. A vibrant plummy red in color. On the nose, there are lifted blackcurrant and briary fruit, expressive of Cabernet Sauvignon, with pure cinnamon and chocolate spice. The palate has leafy, herbaceous notes and rich dark fruit flavors. Well-rounded and velvety, the tannins are ripe and focussed.
