colour

nose

The wine has distinct aromas of red and blackberries, plum and mulberry along with savoury spice, sweet mocha and dark chocolate characters.

palate

At release, this wine is medium to full-bodied with lush red berry, plum and fruit cake characters. The fruit flavours are superbly balanced by the oak's creamy mocha, spice & subtle savoury characters. The palate has a silky, plump texture with grainy tannins through the mid-palate and a long, persistence to finish.

oak maturation

The wine was matured in a combination of older French & American oak barrels for a period of between 9 and 12 months before being blended & bottled.

cellaring notes

Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
