Overview

The Copper series takes our winemaking spirit to a new level, offering hand-crafted, old world-style wines with an Australian twist. The Copper series is the epitome of modern style meets classic finesse.

The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed and fermented in an oak cask for 14 days with minimal plunging for 14 days before being pressed off. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation in 3yr old French oak before it was transported to the Hunter. Here it underwent a minimal maturation period in 1yr old French oak before being finned with egg and filtered prior to bottling within the same year as harvest.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

Clove and red currant jump from the glass, with hints of darker berries and light spice supporting.

Palate

Gritty, powdery tannin over slightly savoury red summer fruits, a plump, juicy and luscious wine of opulent length.
