Shortcross Cask Finish

Shortcross Cask Finish

We’re excited to announce that we have collaborated with James Nicholson Wine Merchants to select casks for our latest cask finish edition. We have returned to Bordeaux and have picked three  wonderful casks from Chateau Cantemerle, Grand Cru Classe, France.

This expression offers a delightful Ruby hue and is a very different take on our previous cask editions. We can’t wait to share this with you.

  • Nose: Herbaceous floral bouquet, followed by juniper and a warm vanilla notes from the casks.
  • Palate: Dark fruits developing into bright juniper with hints clover and elderflower.
  • Finish: A balance of spice and botanical oils, leaving a lush, rich mouthfeel.
