A medium bodied wine bursting with juicy blackberries, cassis, prunes and ripe Damson plums. There is layer of warm mocha spice from oak ageing and soft, firm tannins add a savoury finish and characteristic regional structure.
This wine is ready to enjoy on release but will find further complexity over the next five years.
The 2019 vintage was atypically cool, leading to wines with pristine natural acidity and clean, bright flavours. Reduced yields as a result of the season led to wines with lifted aromatics and concentrated flavour profiles.
The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon were handled separately during winemaking with a range of techniques used, such as open-top fermentation for aeration, pre-fermentation cold soaking for improved colour and tannin extraction as well as post-fermentation maceration on skins. The two varietals were blended after maturation. The philosophy behind Ebony is purity; showcasing fruit richness, flavour and smooth, approachable tannins.
