Yorkville Richard the Lionheart

Richard the Lion-Heart – King of England, Duke of Aquitaine (Bordeaux) & Wine Connoisseur

Our Richard the Lion-Heart is unique: It has all six of the Noble Red grapes originating in Bordeaux. This vintage’s blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Merlot 30%, Petit Verdot 15%, Cabernet Franc 15%, Malbec 5%, and Carmenere 5%. We believe the 2015 vintage to be among the best we’ve released since the first vintage in 1995. Truly a handcrafted wine. Drink this special wine now or cellar for 5 to 15 years

Winemaker Notes: Individual wines were fermented separately. After 20 months in French oak, the best lots were selected and carefully blended during days of intensive blending sessions conducted by the proprietors, winemaker and assistant. Then Richard was blended while tasting each barrel to ensure the best possible final wine.
