DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Vibrant Dark Crimson. Attractive lifted nose with a broad spectrum of fruit including mulberry and blood plum with hints of fennel and integrated cedary oak.

Wine Making

Fruit was harvested early in March and fermented on skins for seven to eight days. After pressing the wine was matured for nine months in French and American oak casks before blending and bottling.

Cellaring

This wine is medium bodied with fresh acidity and will continue to develop over the next three to five years with careful cellaring. It’s the ideal wine to share with family and friends at a BBQ or with wood fired pizza.

Palate:

Shiraz is the predominant variety providing depth of ripe plum and mulberry fruit on the palate. Durif is used for complexity adding dark cherry, earthy ironstone flavours and fine grained, lingering tannins.

These two varieties are the star reds of north-east Victoria, and while this is shiraz dominant, the durif adds more than its fair share to the duet. The nose is rich with intent, each grape’s unique plum and pudding flavours given added depth & palate presence with a mint chocolate note, while the tannins are tempered compared to many a straight durif. - 4/5 points
