Colour At release, the wine is a deep brick red with an evolving crimson hue.
Nose The wine displays complex, intermingling aromas of plums, spice and red fruits with subtle overtones of chocolate, mint and violets along with an appealing ‘tea-like’ herbaceousness and finally cedar and spice from high-quality oak maturation.
Palate The wine displays sublimely supple texture with fine tannins melding together for a mouth filling completeness. Shiraz delivers rich and plump dark plum to the mid palate whilst blackcurrent, dark chocolate and mint characters from the Cabernet Sauvignon drives the long and memorable finish. A complex, layered wine showing excellent evolution at release. (Cabernet Sauvignon 65% / Shiraz 35%).
Vintage Conditions In the growing season leading up to vintage 2017, winter rainfall was above average, in fact it was the wettest year recorded since 2000. Weather conditions during flowering were favourable and hence yield was good across all varieties. With ripening conditions mild, our winemakers have declared the vintage to be above average vintage in terms of both quantity and fruit quality.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in a fine grained French oak barriques (40% new, balance 2 – 3 year old) for a period of 24 months before being bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
