  • Tasting Notes

    Aroma
    Notes of black cherry, fresh blackberry, fresh lavender, pastry crust, and dark chocolate.

    Palate
    Hits the palate with vibrancy and pop. Bright berry notes dance across the palate. Medium to full bodied with richness of fruit balanced by bright refreshing acidity. Tannins are prominent but melt beautifully into a wall of fruit. Finished with a lovely long palate, accented by notes of red licorice, lavender, and dark chocolate with a creamy texture from lees contact.

  • Wine Making

    The many parcels making up this wine were crushed into and fermented in three, five, seven and 10 tonne open top vessels. Regular pump overs three times daily were performed during the peak of fermentation to extract flavours, colour and tannins. At pressing, the free run and pressings were combined to tank, then racked to barrel for oak maturation where malolactic fermentation occurred. All batches were kept separate and blended just prior to bottling.

    Maturation
    Matured for 12 months in French oak, which 15% was new, and the remainder in one to six year old puncheons and hogsheads.
