Grapes were harvested between 2-10 March 2017 from vines planted in 2005 with an average yield of 9.7 tons per hectare. Grapes were de-stalked and hand-sorted before being pumped into stainless steel tanks with aerative pump-overs once a day and then racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation at 28°C. Matured for 18 months in 30% new oak with the balance in older barrels. Bottled at 14%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose:  Dark red fruits with a subtle hint of tobacco.

Palate: Sweet fruit on entry, notes of cassis and blackberry.

Finish: Soft black tea leaf tannins with a medium finish.
