colour

At release, the wine has a concentrated dark purple colour with a deep violet hue to the edges.

nose

There are lifted berry compote aromas along with black cherry and a hint of chocolate and then subtle savoury overtones from the French oak.

palate

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.

oak maturation

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.

cellaring notes

Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
