With all the hard work of cellaring done for you.
Update – Tasted July 2020: Dylan Arvidson (Winemaker)
Bay leaf and coffee grinds, dark forest fruits and cassis, lots of plum and boysenberry, soft elegant tannins. Seems like a warmer year (it is) this wine fills the mouth. Good length driven more by fruit and tannin than acid.
Production – 730 dozen / 8760 bottles
Colour: Deep ruby red with brick red hues.
Bouquet: Dark, ripe forest fruits with cedar wood spice and herbaceous high notes.
Palate: Rich and concentrated, dominated by blackcurrant with notes of chocolate nibs and rich cedar oak. Long, fine tannins and berry acidity work together, giving the wine great poise, length and balance.
