The 2007 Vintage was affected by of one of the worst droughts seen for a very long time. Consequently yields were down dramatically, in some cases, so low it was not worth picking. This has had the effect of concentrating and altering the fruit flavours to what we normally see.
There are some exciting wines in our cellar from 2007, and this wine is no exception.

Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is a dark red with brick red hues.
The aroma is a complex blend of interesting characters such as mulberry, blackberry, rhubarb, fruit cake and earthiness with some hints of leather and meatiness thanks to some time in oak and bottle prior to release.
The palate is quite tightly structured and shows some great fleshy fruit on the mid palate. Flavours of red berry fruits, rhubarb pie and nutty, cedary oak fill the mouth which tapers gently to a long clean finish.
