Vibrant red garnet hues

Rich and slightly plummy in character, with persistent aromas of ripe red berries, and hints of fine chocolate and vanilla from the oak.

A medium weighted style structured to show off the berry flavors that underpin the complex but subtle palate. This is a mid- weighted wine with good depth of fruit, great vibrancy, and a wonderful balance. The elegant oak tannins and natural acidity combine to provide a beautifully long, lingering finish.

The wine was matured in French oak for a 10-month period before bottling. A pleasure to drink now yet will continue to evolve over the next seven to eight years.

    A medium weighted style structured to show off the plum and berry flavors that underpin
    the complex but subtle palate. Mulberry, chocolate, cola and spice are all there on the
    palate. Firm, but elegant, oak tannins and natural balanced acidity combine to provide a
    beautifully long, lingering finish.
