South Eastern Australia
Fresh early January rains prepared vines for what was to be a mild & then dry vintage. The milder temperatures allowed for wonderful expression of fruit aromas and flavours and allowed the retention of natural acid.
Deep burgundy with cherry red hues. Blackberries, plum and an underlying cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon nuances. Aromas carry through onto the palate with plum and fruit cake being enhanced by the subtle minty notes. The vanilla undertones coupled with the ripe tannins give this wine depth and length of flavour.
Fruit was selected by the winemaker and picked when both flavour and tannins were optimum. Cold soaked and fermented over 7 days. Cool temperatures of 22.0-25.0°C maintained to retain vibrant fruit.
Alc/Vol: 14.0%, pH: 3.62, TA: 6.26
