Deep red with a bright purple rim.
Complex aromas of plum, black cherries, leafy notes and spearmint which are complemented by traces of well-integrated oak.
A beautifully soft, fruit driven wine showcasing typical shiraz richness supported by soft tannins and oak.
The fruit was picked in the cool of night then fermented on skins in static potters and rotary fermenters for a period of seven days to retain as much of the luscious natural fruit flavour as possible. Warm temperatures at the early stages of fermentation along with three days of post ferment maceration helped develop soft fleshy fruit and tannins while helping build structure. Following the pressing process, clarification and final blending the fruit was matured with select parcels having contact with 2nd and 3rd use oak.
Great to drink now, but will mature and develop complexity over the medium term.
