An incredibly mild summer with above average rainfall ensured slow, even ripening of the fruit. To preserve delicate fruit flavours, the fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and delivered in small batches to the winery. The grapes were crushed, yeasted and pumped over in traditional style to avoid the extraction of bitter tannins. Select parcels received American oak maturation for 10 months to add complexity and structure prior to final blending and bottling.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dense crimson with a youthful purple hue. Enticing aromas of dark cherry and blackcurrant entwined with milk chocolate and delicate allspice nuances. Smooth concentrated palate of blackcurrant and plum with tantalising overtones of earth and spice, silky tannins and well integrated oak.
Perfect with red meat dishes. Try with roast lamb or gourmet sausages.
