Dark ruby red with a purple hue.NOSE
Lifted aromas of damson and bramble fruits, with nuances of warm, dark cacao.PALATE
Rich, full bodied flavours of ripe plums and fresh blackberry. Supple tannins integrated from the refined French oak, give way to hints of cherry toast and coffee bean, finishing with poise and a seamless length.WINEMAKING
Small open ferments were able to ferment with wild yeast and were hand plunged. Post fermentation the wines were transferred to French Oak Hogsheads. After 14 months in oak, the wines were racked for fining and blending.FOOD PAIRING
Roast beef or slow cooked lamb shanks with potatoes.VINTAGE NOTES
A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured grapes.
