At release the wine is a deep red with a vibrant purple hue.
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.
This is a wine of great intensity. It has distinctive 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.
The wine has been matured in French Oak (2 year old) for a period of 14 months.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
