A NOTE FROM OUR WINEMAKERS
It’s immediately obvious this wine is from Central Otago; it has the wonderful Central Otago mix of fine aromatics, bright cherry fruit and full-flavoured varietal character.

THE FINER DETAILS
Medium dark red colour; bright red currant fruit, lifted cherry spice and not just a hint of herb, sage and rosemary; stunning palate - good structure and length, chunky, savoury and tight.Download Tasting Notes
Considered among the best ever vintages in Central Otago, 2012 produced fruit of optimal ripeness, powerful flavour and true varietal character.
Each clone was fermented separately and hand plunged in small open fermenters. The wine was aged for 12 months in a mix of old and new French oak.
