We’ve tasted this
At release, the wine has a concentrated ruby red colour with a dark mahogany hue to the edge. The nose is complex and enticing with red berry fruits, dark chocolate, dusty spice and hints of charcuterie, cigar box and roasted coffee.
On the palate, this is a rich and complex wine with layers of flavour. Dark berry fruits combine with lashings of coffee, chocolate and spice from high quality oak. The fruit and oak weight create a multidimensional palate which is defined with well-balanced, elegant tannins. This is a very generous wine with textural complexity and long, persistent flavours.
A percentage of the fruit for this wine was fermented in headless American oak barrels and left to soak on skins for 2 weeks. Post fermentation, the wine was matured for 20 months in high quality water-bent American oak barrels.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a long term under ideal conditions.
