WINEMAKING
The fruit was picked then de-stemmed/crushed into 8-tonne closed fermenters and inoculated. The fermenters were pumped over with aeration twice a day; temperature was held around 25°C. The wine was then pressed to French barriques for its Malolactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was blended, fined with egg whites and bottled after 18 months maturation.
 
Award
95 Points – James Halliday
 
TASTING NOTES
Dark red with crimson hues. Aromas of Blackcurrant, liquorice and chocolate. The medium bodied palate is concentrated with fine dusty tannins. Flavours of bramble fruits lead to a long complex finish.
