A rich bouquet with aromas of plum, cherry and hints of mocha and spice.
The palate is full of rich dark berries and licorice on a generous silky smooth finish.
The 2014 vintage was another stand out vintage for the Frankland River Region. A cool dry spring, leading into a moderate dry and warm summer, ensured low yields and perfect even and slow berry development.
The grapes where harvested during the cool of the night to ensure quality was maintained. A cool fermentation took place in static fermenters and gentle extraction of colour and flavour was achieved over a two week period. After primary ferment the wine was gently pressed off skins to a mix of new, second use and third use larger format French oak barrels. After 18 months maturation in barrel the wine was blended prior to bottling.
