A lifted violet perfume, fragrant blueberries and black plums with a side of cured meats.
The palate has beautiful density of fruit, liquorice spices and a slate-graphite minerality. The cool climate acidity brings an energy and brightness to the palate which will carry it through many years of cellaring. A solid framework of chary oak tannins perfectly balanced with the intense fruit flavour and a layered texture. The persistence of the elegant flavour profile lingers for an age.
A small section of the Shiraz vineyard was hand-harvested for this wine, gently destemmed to retain whole berries, and placed into a 600kg fermenter where it was handplunged twice daily. After gentle pressing it was gravityfed into four French oak barriques, of which two were new.
Drinking beautifully at present and will evolve for a further 20 years under suitable cellaring conditions.
