Deep garnet in colour this wine has a rich and varied bouquet of blackcurrant, cassis and dark fruitcake with milk chocolate and after dinner mints highlighted by lifted herbal characters. The mid-palate is soft and rich with dark fruit flavours and well integrated oak that adds spice to the flavour profile.

The wine was then transferred to barrel to complete malolactic fermentation after pressing. All of the wine was then matured in predominantly French oak hogheads for 14 months.
