Vibrant, aromatic nose of black cherry, mulberry, satsuma plum and blood orange with complexing notes of star anise, rosemary and white pepper spice.
Raspberry, blueberry, violet and red flowers through the front and mid-palates are balanced by hints of cured meats, roasting herbs & pepper spice. Layers of tannin add frame, structure and length – cocoa, graphite, wet gravel.
A cooler vintage in Margaret River, characterised by a slower ripening period with good retention of fruit aromatics and natural grape acidity.
15 months maturation in a combination of new (~20%) and seasoned French oak barriques.
Tannins are sufficiently soft and pliable to drink now but will continue to evolve over the next 6-8 years.
Dark garnet red.
