Colour At release the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue.
Nose The wine has an aroma of rich blackcurrant, subtle spice, tomato leaf and a touch of eucalypt. French oak maturation is also evident with subtle aromas of cedar and dark chocolate.
Palate This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavours. Subtle oak characters of cedar cigar box and spice are also evident. The tannins are fine and elegant – a hallmark of the varietal. The palate is well balanced, complex and fulfilling and lingers on the finish.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured for up to 12 months in French oak barrels (50% 2 yo, remainder 3 yo) prior to final blending and bottling.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.

    The flavours weave through cassis, chocolate, licorice, dry herbs and mulberries – a wine chock full of flavour. The structure is of a rich, ripe, even plush style and notes of truffles emerge on the palate. Good acidity, balance, length and finishing with firm tannins. If you prefer to cellar it, the wine has at least a decade to go.

    The stalwart of student days continues its stalwart duties decades on and just as reliably. For anyone wanting to go back to study, you are well catered for and still affordable even to those building a HECS debt.

    Medium-intense ruby-red colour. Blackberry, lantana flower and smoky aromas. Medium-weight, with dark fruits and dark earth savoury notes. Good length with a well-driven line of supple tannins. Good value here

    Blackcurrants and mulberries dominate the front palate while hints of tobacco and eucalypt appear through the middle. The real attraction of the wine, however, is in the finish where cassis, star anise and sweet cedar oak collide and linger through an opera length conclusion.
