A warm, dry start to the season brought on rapid, early flowering. After a much-needed rain in January, summer progressed with warm days and relatively cool nights, perfect for ripening. A burst of heat in late January brought on an early, condensed harvest with wines full of flavour and with good natural balance.
COLOUR: Deep crimson with purple hues. NOSE: Blackberry, cassis and leafy varietal notes are supported by an integrated oak lift. PALATE: A medium bodied wine with fleshy blackcurrant and dark berry fruit, hints of leafiness and supporting mocha-and-spice oak. Fine tannins mesh seamlessly with the fruit to produce a structural wine with a lasting finish.
