At release the wine is a bright garnet colour with a vibrant rose hue to the edges.
There are dark cherry and kirsch characters along with subtle dried mint notes.
This wine has dark cherry and tart rhubarb characters along with subtle dried herbs. The tannins display red apple skin like characters on the palate. The extremely gentle fruit handling has resulted in a wine that is both delicate in nature and also generous in flavour. A well-defined acid profile provides structure whilst the silky tannins provide beautiful texture. The high quality French oak holds court to the finish, which is lingering and extremely moreish.
French oak was employed for its ability to deliver a degree of elegance and length to the palate. The wine was matured for 7 months in 2 and 3 year old French oak before being blended, filtered and bottled.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a short term under ideal conditions.
