"Deep crimson; a fragrant blend of red cherry, liqueur soaked plums, licorice and ironstone; the palate is medium-bodied and fragrant, with a strong backbone of tannins providing length and simply demanding food to counter the structure."

The must is racked and the temperature brought to 20 degrees celsius for a slow fermentation to retain maximum flavours and freshness. We use a combination of aged in tanks and some wine matured in 3 to 4 year old barrels adding body and structure. The wine is left to settle prior to being cross flow filtered and bottled. Extreme handling and care maintains strong and fruit driven characters.
Drink now when young and fruity or in next couple of years.
