Decanter Comments

"Floral strawberry and maraschino cherry aromatics. On the palate fine sweet tannins that give the wine a savoury/sappy note; really pretty red fruit behind, plus a fine mocha edge. Lovely length. Superb."

Wine Pairing

This elegant wine compliments a range of darker meat dishes including Peking Duck, lamb and quail.

Winemaking and Viticulture

The fruit (clone 5, 6, 10/5, Abel & 115) was hand harvested between the 8th and 13th of April and destemmed into open top fermenters before being inoculated with selected wine yeasts to carry out the fermentation.  The wine was aged in French Oak barriques for 12 months, of which 30% was new oak.

Tasting Notes

Deep purple, with purple hues. Fragrant dried herb, bright cherry, spice, violets and smoky char. The palate has sweet black cherry, plum, leather, tobacco, chocolate and a hint of cinnamon. Complex, full bodied with good concentration and silky fine grain tannins that lead to a long dark fruit finish.
