Description

  • Oaked
  • Crushed peppercorns
  • Dark cocoa
  • Velvety tannins

This traditional blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot & Malbec boast a deep inky red - purple colour. Aromas of freshly crushed peppercorns, roasted capsicum & blackcurrant fill the glass. On the palate there is a generosity of fruit. The notes of dark cocoa and smokey bacon intertwined with velvety tannins lead to a complex finish.

An above average wet Spring and cooler than average Summer temperatures led to a later start to picking than normal. This combined with a long and mild ripening period meant that our fruit developed to a beautiful level of maturity on the vine. This has led to outstanding flavours and perfumed, expressive wines.  The colours are vibrant and tannins are silky with a fine savoury finish.

The fruit was harvested at night. Fermentation was carried out in a variety of small capacity fermenters. After pressing the parcels were filled to French oak for 12 months maturation.  The wine was racked after six months and the parcels were blended to form the final wine.
