Highly rated, James halliday Wine Companion
Estate-grown. Modest colour; light to medium-bodied, with a mix of spice and mint overtones to the black cherry fruit. Pleasant wine.

This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth of flavour. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation and then matured for 9 months in French oak to build complexity.
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour.
