    • $55.00
    • $60.00

    Aroma


    Violets on the nose, with red cherries, satsuma plums, roasted hazelnuts.

     

     

    Palate

     

     

    Medium-full bodied, with soft tannins that close the deal.

    Vinification
    Hand-picked, then either destemmed and fermented as whole berries, or fermented as whole bunches with stems. We like gentle handling and long ferments so the tannins are fine, and the perfume of cool climate Shiraz is not lost. Matured in mainly older French oak.

    Cellaring Potential

     

    Has the concentration and structure to develop fine tertiary characters in bottle over the next 15 years.

    Screwcap. ABV 14%

    95 Point - Huon Hooke, The Real Review

    "Very deep and bright red-purple with impressive saturation, while the bouquet is fresh and brightly youthful dark fruits and spices, black cherry through to dark plum, with a hint of earthy ironstone and graphite—almost a pepperiness. The tannins are ample and supple, adding texture and gravitas as well as a trace of agreeable bitterness which either food or bottle-age will mellow out. Splendid shiraz that will richly reward keeping."
