Colour At release the wine is a deep red with youthful purple hues.
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 rich 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 This wine has been matured for 14 months in fine-grained French oak barrels – a mixture of 20% new and 80% 1 to 3 year old - prior to bottling.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
