This wine is the culmination of a number of years experience in fruit selection and winemaking techniques. It shows excellent fruit expression and is rounded enough to enjoy immediately, yet has sufficient extraction and tannin structure to evolve and develop into the future.

Color:
Deep Ruby
Aromas:
This wine shows a rich and complex bouquet. Dark plum, berry, cassis and spicy fruit aromas are complemented with integrated oak showing smoky, toasty and dark chocolate characters.
Palate:
The palate is medium bodied with a core of ripe, spicy fruit enhanced with charry oak. The wine shows exceptional length of flavour with ripe, savoury fruit and oak tannin.

Food and Wine Match:

It is an absolutely classic match for a roast fore-rib of beef accompanied by a selection of roast vegetables and horseradish sauce.

Cellaring:

The wine is approachable to drink now, but has the balance and extract necessary to improve for the next 10 years, with careful cellaring.

Fermentation Notes:

The barrels used were a blend of French oak barrels, from new (48%) to three years old.
