Colour At release the wine is a dark red colour with ruby red hues.
Nose The wine has a seductive, lifted aroma characterised by plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with subtle chocolate and a touch of oak derived spice.
Palate The palate is rich, luscious and round with intense, perfectly ripened fruit characters. Mocha coffee and subtle spice characters complement generous fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a soft mid-palate and supple tannins. It has a well-balanced structure with great texture, good length and lashings of fruit on the finish.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in a combination of French (10%) and American (90%) oak for twelve months followed by fining, minimal filtration and then bottling.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
