A NOTE FROM OUR WINEMAKERS

Complex dark spicy fruit, oak and nutty characters on the nose. A full flavoured palate with some ripe berry and slightly savoury fruit adding to the complexity.

THE FINER DETAILS

TASTING NOTES

This is a dark spicy wine with complexity derived from two parcels of grapes. It has savoury tones of olive and dried herbs and black cherry flavours. A wine with texture and weight, it partners equally well with rich French-style cuisine or spicy Asian foods.

VINTAGE

Good winter rainfall leading to excellent soil moisture set the scene for a terrific vintage. Rain in February provided welcome and timely relief in the otherwise dry and warm conditions.

WINEMAKING

Fruit for this wine came from two vineyards – one on the valley floor where soils are clay loam over yellow mudstone and one in the Upper Yarra, with its rich, red volcanic soils. The wine was fermented in small closed fermenters over 12 days and then aged in French oak, 33% new, for 11 months.
