Frank Cornelissen, Magma 2017 3 Litre Jeroboam
One of only a handful left in the world right here! Magma is Frank's top Cuvee, produced annually in quantities of 500-1500 bottles. Some years, if the ripeness of the grapes is not deemed absolutely perfect, it isn't made at all. Of all the vineyards, Magma comes from the highest at just over 900 metres above sea level and is made from ungrafted Nerello Mascalese vines that are over 100 years old. The end result for the 2017 is a wine that brims the energy and tension that these mineral-rich volcanic soils provide alongside deep plummy and dark stone fruit notes.
Great investment wine or one for a super special occasion!
