This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth of flavour. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation and then matured for 9 months with French oak to build complexity.
A classic cool climate growing season with ample rainfall and cold temperatures was followed by a dry and sunny autumn. The result being a slow, even ripening with tremendous flavour development at low sugar levels.
Vibrant crimson with magenta hues.
Intense flavours of black cherries, layers of pepper and spice, with a fleshy palate weight and chewy ripe tannins.
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the three to five years with careful cellaring.
