Colgin IX Estate 2017


The 2017 “IX Estate” beams from the glass with a feeling of purpose and a sense of place.

Raspberry and marzipan combine with juniper and nutmeg, adding complexity at every sip. The 2017 “IX Estate” offers a balance of firm yet pleasurable structure and a harmonious succulence. The 2017 “IX Estate” retains focus and purity combined with heightened acidity, ensuring it will last for decades.
