Region Yarra Valley
Colour At release, the wine has a deep rose colour to the centre with a vibrant garnet hue to the edges.
Nose There is a delicate perfume of red cherry and raspberry with underlying delicate spice.
Palate This is a light to medium-bodied wine with a supple yet generously flavoured palate. On the palate, there is vibrant red fruit flavours with hints of tart raspberry and lithe tannins. The finish is long, graceful and wonderfully persistent.
Vintage Conditions In the Yarra Valley, a cold and dry winter finally gave way to a dry, mild spring which slightly delayed budburst. The dry weather then broke beautifully in late November with some much needed rainfall. A bit more in December meant that the canopies were full and healthy when January arrived, bringing periods of extreme heat which continued into February and kept growers on their toes. The remainder of the vintage continued with perfect ripening weather, no rain and no disease pressure. Whilst history might not mark 2018 as one of the best vintages, overall, the wine quality still looked to be above average.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in second and third fill premium French oak barriques for 12 months before being fined, filtered and bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.

    Medium to light ruby colour with purple tints and a gumleaf-minty herbal overtone to the bouquet. The palate is firm and tight and the finish shuts down early.
