Opaque, perfumed with fragrant black cherry, cassis and spice. Full bodied, intense with countless layers of flavour including blackcurrant, cedar and graphite. Dense fruit on the palate is bound by a structure of fine grained tannins and a lively acidity. This wine shows great depth and character and yet is refined with a long, elegant finish.
The taste and flavours of the grapes determine the harvest date and orientate our wine making to allow the quality of the fruit to express freely in the wine – totally natural process.
“…offers perfumed, slightly exotic notes of lilac, violets, sweet black cherries and black raspberry (…) well-made profile that’s hard to resist…” Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate Robert Parker 2015, Rating 88 Pts
