"Brightly fruited and nicely fragrant, the bouquet shows plum, cranberry, thyme and floral characters. The palate is juicy and mellow with youthful fruit flavours together with smooth mouthfeel and silky tannins, finishing succulent and friendly" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019

A concentrated wine from Marlborough which is cherry red in colour with purple highlights. Vanilla and bright cherry aromas with a hint of spice fill the glass. The palate displays flavours of  plum and boysenberry, with Christmas cake spices and a long toasty finish.  An elegant medium bodied palate structure is supported with silky tannins and well balanced acidity, interlaced with spicy oak and coffee. Although this wine will cellar for at least five years from vintage date, it can also be enjoyed now while young.

Fruit for this wine was held cold for five days prior to ferment to help extract maximum flavour. It was aged in oak until the right balance was achieved and then gently extracted and prepared to bottle.

Food Pairing: A great food match with lasagne and crusty bread.
