Each vintage we cellar a few cases of each wine we produce to empower the tertiary evolution that transpires in bottle. This is when bouquet, acidity and structure further evolve together over many years to produce an even more complex wine. We will release these wines again at a later date.

The palate is layered with dark fruit, rustic tannins and a complex richness. Concentrated without being too heavy, the wine has profound balance and although it is expressive in its youth, the 2016 Hossfeld Coliseum Block is a wine that will show more and more integration as it matures. With an exceptional depth, this wine is a perfect showcase of this historic vineyard block.
