Given the intensity and balance of the 2015 vintage, I think this Ballinderry sets a new benchmark for the style here. 38% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit comes from vines planted between 1971 and 1987. 3 weeks on skins, 22 months in French oak barriques (Taransaud), 30% new. It has the structure to age with distinction over many years.
