The grapes for this wine were picked from forty year old vines growing on the red basalt volcanic clay of our Timbervines Vineyard. With an average yield of under one tonne per acre the fruit for this wine was ripe and concentrated. The grapes were fermented under cool conditions using cultured aromatic yeast and transferred to 4 & 5 year old oak hogsheads for a period of eighteen months to allow it to soften and mature.

Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant purple in colour.
This wine displays a complex bouquet of dark red fruits, spice, and hints of coffee bean.
The wine is well structured showing classic Hunter tannins, great palate length, balance and finesse. Although approachable now with careful cellaring this medium bodied wine should continue to develop more complex savoury characters over the next decade.
