Wine Description
Intense crimson in colour the wine displays an attractive complex aroma of ripe black berries, dark chocolate and woody spice. The palate is concentrated and structured, characterised by layers of dark fruits intermingled with savoury spice, finishing long, with very fine velvety tannins.

Wine making
The fruit was hand harvested and destemmed with 10% whole cluster inclusion. Submerged cap fermentation with indigenous yeasts in a small open top fermenter for 21 days prior to pressing. Elevage was undertaken in French oak hogsheads, 30% new, and on lees for 18 months prior to bottling. The wine was naturally clarified and bottled without fining or filtration.
