72% Petit Verdot, 28% Shiraz
Vintage character together with site expression is the key to this blend. Each variety was handled separately and fermented in new open top French oak barrels for 10 days with at least 2 daily punch downs. Maturation was allowed in second-fill and older 300 litre barrels for 18 months before final blending.
(EN) Brooding ruby depth with outspoken dark berry pastille and fleshy plum aromas layered with winter spice and roast cacao bean complexity. The entry is smooth and rich leading to sumptuous ripe mulberry, black cherry and cassis flavours etched with black pepper and oak spice finishing with tremendous texture and lingering fruit concentration.
