This wine displays rich, berry-laden, dark chocolate characters underpinned by a hint of sweet leather.
At release, the wine has a concentrated dark purple colour with a deep violet hue to the edges.
There are lifted berry compote aromas along with black cherry and a hint of chocolate and then subtle savoury overtones from the French oak.
This is an elegant wine with immediate flavours of boysenberry, blackberry and then more subtle chocolate and spice. The palate is bright, vibrant and juicy with a precise fine tannin line. The oak maturation brings depth and length to the palate. The wine is very well balanced with well integrated oak and the finish is persistent and imminently enjoyable.
The wine was matured in fine grained French oak barrels (20% new, remainder 2 - 3 year old) for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
