Tasting Note

 ‘From old vines in Marananga & Vine Vale, whole berry-open fermented, 7-10 days on skins, basket pressed, matured for 19 months in used French hogsheads. Very good colour, full and bright; spicy forest berries on the bouquet lead into medium-bodied palate that has remarkable drive, precision & freshness to its dark berry/cherry fruits and ripe tannins’ – Halliday Wine Companion 2019
