WINEMAKING COMMENTS: Saint Jude’s is given the ‘Royal Treatment’ throughout the whole winemaking process from hand picking the parcels of superior fruit, to selecting the highest quality barrels for oak ageing. Saint Jude’s is a beautifully crafted, complex wine – it is rich and intense, yet elegant and refined. It has been described as ‘an iron fist in a velvet glove.’
