$33.00 CELLAR CLUB
$29.70

DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Aged red with brick hues developing. Fragrant notes of ripe red plum and brambleberries are supported by spicy oak.

Wine Making

The grapes were crushed to stainless steel tanks for 7-8 days on skins before pressing and completing primary fermentation in French and American oak puncheons (500l). Extended maturation has given time for the tannins to soften and fully integrate before bottling.

Cellaring

The 2015 vintage was typical of Rutherglens’ long and dry autumns. The extended ripening period provided ideal conditions for the grapes to develop intense colour, depth of fruit and flavour. Enjoyable now served as a mature wine with char grilled meats or braised beef cheeks.

Palate:

The wine is medium bodied with plush redcurrant and cassis fruit. Extended maturation in a mix of French and American puncheons has provided further complex notes of char and dried herb. The finely textured palate is underpinned by integrated tannins that is quintessentially Petit Verdot.
