The Ultimate Wine Prize    

Be the lucky owner of this rare jeroboam (one of only two produced) of Hillside Estate Winery's top wine -"MOSAIC". This new world Bordeaux-style blend is like a Mosaic -- a work of art that is created by combining smaller pieces which include, Merlot (72%), Cabernet Franc (9%), Cabernet Sauvignon (9%), Petit Verdot (5%), and Malbec (5%). It tickles the nose with cherries, chocolate and cedar. Approachable tannins are highlighted by flavours of mocha and vanilla and traces of aniseed. The wine was crafted to last in the cellar for at least 7-10 years. This is the ultimate wine prize!
