Dead of Night 2017

‚ÄčNot everyone's lot in life is to follow rules and regulations.  Us folks at Moon Curser are those kind of folks.  Enjoy the fruits of our nefarious labour in this rich, red blend of Syrah and Tannat grapes.  We'd say it was our flagship wine, if waving a flag didn't draw attention to us..........

The 2017 Dead of Night is a dry, medium to full-bodied red wine with deep ruby colour and nose of baking spices, chocolate and raspberries. The palate brings out characters of lavender, cherry, leather and cinnamon. The wine has fantastic structure; the silky and plush tannins provide the perfect underpinning for the lingering acidity and the generous savoury and floral notes.

Dead of Night (surprisingly for such a well-structured wine) is approachable and drinks well upon release. However, this is also a wine that has the flavour intensity, as well the acid and tannin structure required to make it an excellent candidate for cellaring for up to ten years. Your patience will be rewarded – we continue to be surprised at how beautifully this wine evolves in bottle over time.
