full bodied, ripe & smooth
Sourced from select vineyards within South Eastern Australia, this modern and contemporary wine is fresh, vibrant, and fruit driven. The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed to varying sizes and styles of red fermenters where the fruit was fermented on oak at cooler temperatures for 5-7 days. Fermenting at cooler temperatures allows the fruit flavours to be nurtured and enables retention of varietal characteristics. Post fermentation, the majority of wine is matured in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of the wine transferred onto French and American Oak. Components are then selected, blended, stabilised, and clarified.
Bright violet purple, with good depth. Blackberry and plum fruit flavours dominate upfront. It then leads with some spicy notes of cinnamon and clove. The acid is soft and tannins are are evident, but are ripe and smooth in this full bodied wine. The length is generous and the finish is persistent.
Lifted red fruits, complex with spicy notes of toasted oak.
