A variety made famous in Rioja, this is a medium-bodied with seductive flavours of blueberries, cherries and dark plums. French oak maturation provides subtle savoury, spice characters.
Clare Valley & McLaren Vale
At release the wine is a ruby red with a vibrant purple hue.
The wine displays rich dark cherry fruit characteristics with hints of spicy incense and underlying dusty oak aromas.
This is a medium-bodied wine with flavours of maraschino cherry, plums and subtle spice along with well integrated savoury French oak. There is a pleasing soft and silky texture to the mid palate and the wine has a long, persistent finish.
Half of the blend was matured in new American oak and the remaining 50% was matured in a combination of both French and American oak (3 and 4 year old) for 8 months before final blending and bottling.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a short term under ideal conditions.
