An intense, juicy red blend of dark cherries, plum and liquorice with a hint of cigar box and wood spice. The creamy midpalate evolves to a long, savoury finish.

The North-South facing vineyards used for this wine are grown in a combination of Glenrosa and Oakleaf soils. The vines are vertically trellised for optimal bunch and berry ripening and irrigation is scheduled according to soil moisture monitoring.

All red wines underwent MLF and a portion of the wine was matured on oak staves while the remainder underwent 12 months of ageing in third and fourth fill barrels ensuring good wood/fruit integration. The wine was then blended and lightly filtered shortly before bottling.

Food Pairing
