||At release, the wine has a concentrated dark purple colour with a deep violet hue to the edges.
||There are lifted dark cherry and black plum aromas along with subtle dusty spice, dried rose petals and rich polished leather overtones.
||This is a rich wine with berry-laden, dark chocolate characters underpinned by a hint of sweet leather. The oak maturation brings depth and length to the palate with a lovely tannin line. The wine is very well balanced with well integrated oak and the finish is persistent and imminently enjoyable
||French oak was employed for its ability to deliver a degree of elegance and length to the palate. The wine was matured for 20 months in fine-grained French oak before being blended, filtered and bottled.
||Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.
