Why do we love this wine?

I’ve always had a soft spot for fortifieds. Maybe it’s the memories of European Christmases they evoke or their warming effect, something lights up inside me when I taste them. So when John (our fortified expert) casually poured a little of this 97 point elixir and asked “who wants to try this?”, I nearly bit off his hand. Crafted using a blend of Barossa shiraz, dolcetto, grenache and pedro, that dates back to 1947, we’ve only got 18 cases of this gem tawny up for grabs. So if you want piece of this treasure, you better start digging for it now.

Made by David Franz, the son of Peter Lehman, this wine’s history is as rich as its character. It all started 70 years-ago in the Barossa, a historic hotspot for Aussie fortifieds, when Peter first began building up stocks of the base wine for this towering tawny. While some of this stock went into famous drops like Saltram Mr Pickwick’s Particular Tawny, much of it was owned and set aside by Peter for his own purposes… cue the Old Redemption X.O.

First released in 1980s, the Old Redemption X.O. continues to delight fortified fans with its opulent, layered and complex personality. And with David Franz at the helm, the blending baton for this wine is in very capable pair of hands. 

Prepare yourself, however, this wine is not for the faint hearted. It smacks you in the face with powerful toffee aromas, complex oak notes and some brandy spirit smells. The palate is silky and syrupy, with concentrated raisin flavours, spice and cigar box characters.
