Deep, dark garnet.
Vibrant, dark red in colour with fresh plum, cherry, stewed rhubarb with hints of white pepper and Chinese five-spice on the nose. The lively palate has delightful ripe cherry and plum flavours, while warm subtle spices and cocoa contribute to the complexity, integrating with the savoury oak and supple tannins. A refined and aromatic Shiraz, with delightful drive and length, delivering a seamless, smooth finish.
This elegant, cool climate Shiraz is enjoyable for its youthful freshness, or to savour over the next decade.
Both large static and traditional open top fermenters were used to ferment on skins for seven to ten days, using a variety of yeasts to increase fruit vibrancy and complexity. MLF was encouraged on skins and completed in tank prior to 12 months ageing in old and new French, American and Hungarian hogsheads.
The final blend is a compilation of fruit from a number of growers in the region, along with some estate fruit. The regional blending from several vineyards has produced wonderful complexity and depth of flavours.
Deep black cherry
A deep, black cherry hue with spicy plum and pepper, and the aroma of mixed berries lead to a full, rich palate. Sweet blueberries and mulberries flavours are underscored by subtle anise and nutmeg integrating with the savoury oak and supple tannins. The obvious fruit flavours are harnessed by the elegant structure, making for a refined and aromatic Shiraz, with delightful drive. The long, lingering powdery tannins deliver a seamless, smooth finish.
An elegant cool climate Shiraz that is superb drinking now, yet can be savoured over the next decade.
