Colour: Deep red with a purple hue.
Bouquet: Pungent notes of cracked pepper and cinnamon, with blackberry, raspberry and liquorice all having a say. Layered and complex.
Palate: Very plush, but spicy red and blue fruits interplay with the fine long tannins to create a harmony of medium bodied extract and flavour.
Cellaring: This vibrant and finely structured wine is great to enjoy now with food but will soften and gain complexity over the next 10 years.
Vintage: A warm, dry growing season meant that the vines ripened quickly, and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and some February rain gave the vines a well-deserved drink and freshened them up before the grapes were harvested.
