This is an interesting release. First sip, and I loved it. It’s fleshy, chewy, cherried and flashed with dried herb and leaf notes. Both country and western, so to speak. Savoury and sweet. I took it to the dinner table and it did itself proud, but the longer I sat with it the more I noticed how dry it was, and how there is a minor touch of game. I took that as complexity, and as part of its charm. But more technocratic drinkers mightn’t fall the same way. Personally, I reckon this is good.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright purple red.
This wine is bursting with red fruits such as raspberry, cherry and plum along with a lift of dried herbs, vanilla bean, mocha and a background cherry cola character.
The palate is succulent and dense with red berry fruit flavours along with red liquorice & backed up with spice and finishing with savoury fine dry tannins.
It is a wine to enjoy now and for at least the next 5 years.
