Deep dark squid ink with youthful purple and red hues. Luscious aromas of ripe blackberry and concentrated cherry are highlighted by nuances of milk chocolate, violet and cassis. The palate is youthfully opulent and potent, with rich dark cherry, blackberry, aniseed, liquorice and earthy leather flavours building through the mid palate before the silky tannins and fresh acid explode which are typical characters of the vintage. This full-bodied Shiraz has a long lingering finish. Enhanced with a shot of espresso like American and French oak. Fermented in stainless steel, small volume fermenters to maintain strong fruit flavour from skins. Hand plunged twice daily for seven days then transferred into American and French oak barrels for the remainder of ferment then spent 14 months to allow full flavour development.
96 Point Rated - Australian Wine Showcase Magazine
"Fruit driven spicy, blackcurrant aromas. Plenty of sweet fruit on the palate, tasting of violets, blackcurrant, blackberry and cherries with wonderfully integrated oak. Has very nice complexity."
