Tasting notes
Deep ruby red, rich aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of herbs and nutty oak. It has velvety tannins, with a smooth finish that is long and tasty.
Winemaker's notes
The fruit for this vintage was amazing; the grapes were fantastically ripe and extremely flavourful. The Goal in the winery was to craft a wine that embodied all the diversity of flavours and aromas developed in the Vineyard. To help achieve this a few key techniques were employed: a long “cold soak” prior to fermentation extracted more of the subtle light fruit characters from the skins; a relatively fast alcoholic fermentation with a long post ferment maceration balanced out the tannins; the wine was barrelled down immediately after pressing and a lot of solids were incorporated to enhance the mouth fell and texture; and the wine was racked only once, priot to bottling.
