Deeper colour than the varietal; a powerful wine tasted days after it was bottled; full of firm red berry fruits and good length and balance.Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant cherry

Aroma

Sweet black cherry, cranberry, pretty briar.

Palate

Cherry, red berries, velvety tannins, floral, even, long

Cellaring Potential

Released after 6 months bottle age, an additional 5-10 years will further enhance complexity for those who can resist the temptation of enjoying this wine immediately!

Food Matching

Twice cooked duck with dupuy lentils, pink lady apple and jus gras.

Winemaking Note

One parcel of this fruit went as whole berries in to a small open fermenter. After 36 hours the fruit was inoculated at a low rate to promote a slow start to the fermentation process. Hand plunged daily, with the occasional pump over, contributed to the depth of fruit and colour desired for delivering part of our wine style.

The second parcel went in to a static fermentation tank as 50% whole berry and 50% crushed fruit.

Both parcels were pressed individually and were held as separate batches in new and seasoned French oak. Post secondary ferment these wines were matured on light lees for approximately 11 months. A barrel selection between the two batches was chosen to produce the final wine. A light filtration was performed prior to bottling on 3rd

March 2011.
