Winemaker's Notes:
"Fragrant and voluptuous when first released, it will become far more subtle and complex with age, as of course we all will: but such restraint may just be too much to ask...Perfumed dark fruits fill your glass when first opened and are followed by a brightly focused core of red berries, baking spice and juicy acidity. A wine truly greater than the sum of its parts, eternally varied in composition but always tasting as Pleiades should."

My thoughts...
Sean Thackrey's Pleiades is a nod to the great sangiovese led wines of Northern Italy, with their elegant red fruit and tobacco leaf notes, but with a new world twist with its fruit driven style. It's certainly a wine to sip, savour and unravel.

The blending of mature red wines with their more youthful counterparts is a technique rarely seen in modern day wine making. Perhaps for good reason; cellaring multiple vintages of reserve wines for several years prior to blending and release, is costly both in terms of time and resources.

However, I applaud Sean Thackrey for his unorthodox approach as the resulting wine introduces levels of complexity and joy that can only result from graceful aging, in harmony with a freshness of fruit found in younger examples. Wonderful stuff indeed.

Sean Thackrey sadly passed away earlier this year, but his eccentricity and flamboyance lives on in these wines.
