On release the wine has lifted red berry and herbal characters on the nose. A varietal palate with primarily dark berry fruit characters and dried herbs. French oak spice adds to the complexity of the wine. The palate has long elegant tannins which balance the fruit and oak weight well. The wine has a clean finish and lingering flavour. VINTAGE Spring rainfall was well below average with several days reaching 30C. The growing season had even temperatures and little rainfall. Ripening was slow and steady leading to the development of good tannin structure and fruit characters
