An elegant, perfumed expression of the variety, this wine is well structured, full of juicy red fruit and violet characters, superbly balanced with smooth tannins.
At release, the wine has a deep rose colour to the centre with a vibrant garnet hue to the edges.
There is a delicate perfume of red cherry and strawberry with underlying delicate spice.
This is a light to medium-bodied wine with a supple yet plump texture. On the palate, there is generous red cherry flavours with hints of strawberry along with a touch of spice from French oak. The finish is long, graceful and wonderfully persistent.
The wine was matured in a selection of 3 and 4 year old French oak barriques for a very short period before being bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
