Ovid Hexameter 2014
The 2014 Hexameter wine is opulent and robust with vibrant fruit, reflecting its early and generous growing season. Notes of fresh boysenberry, black raspberry and rhubarb pie combine with violet candy, sage and cardamom to create a bold wine with a great sense of balance.
Hexameter is the meter that Ovid used in his greatest poem: Metamorphoses. This form of verse is uniquely suited to the telling of long and inspiring tales that stand the test of time. They aim to recreate these qualities in the Hexameter wine, featuring our Pritchard Hill estate’s most profound and compelling Cabernet Franc as its core. Hexameter is only available in some years — when the vines and stars align.
