Tasting Notes

Dark crimson. The nose on this young wine is still a little closed however given time to open up it shows dominant blackcurrant, mint and soft oak.

Wine Making

The grapes were fermented on skins for ten days with pumping over twice a day. The wine then spent approx six months in French and American oak barriques prior to bottling.

Cellaring

A well structured and balanced wine that is appealing in its youth and given the wines structure will continue to develop with time in bottle. Enjoy over the coming 3-5 years with BBQ lamb or venison sausages with chunky tomato relish.

Palate:

A stylish medium bodied wine, with intense blackberry and blackcurrant fruit and a touch of mint giving way to spicy complexity that carries through from the nose. The wine features very fine natural fruit tannins providing real interest and length.
