The 2008 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is densely extracted and ruby in colour. It is
powerfully concentrated with black cherries, blackberries, black currant and notes
of leafy tobacco, and menthol aromas. This wine has flavours of racy black fruit and
delicate herbs. Firm tannins and refreshing acidity ensure that this wine will stand the
test of time.
The 2008 Oldfield Series 2Bench Red is the second vintage of this wine to be
released. It is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet
Franc. The varietals for this wine are kept separate throughout harvest and
fermentation. It spends approximately 18 months in new French oak barrels before
being bottled and then aged for an additional 18 months in bottle before release.
