After crushing and destemming, the parcels of fruit were fermented separately in traditional style fermenters. The wines were gently pressed, racked and transferred to French, American and Hungarian oak for 12 months maturation before blending and bottling.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS: RICHARD MATTNER
This wine was matured in a combination of seasoned and new oak for 12 months.
Deep plum red in colour.
Aromas of ripe dark berry fruits, black currants and plums with mint and varietal leafy notes.
The palate is rich and flavoursome, full of plush, dark fruits soft talcy tannins and hints of oak. The wine has generous length and balance, while finishing rich and soft.
Residual Sugar: 0.4g/L
Bottling Date: July 2017
This wine can be enjoyed now but will also improve with careful cellaring.
