Fermentation in stainless steel vats with temperature control. Then 12 months resting in French and American oak barrels.
Bright vivacious ruby in colour. Fabulous aromatic expression of ripe cherry, balsamic and fig syrup with hints of cacao and sweet spices such as cinnamon.
Juicy with a smooth texture, balanced mouthfeel with bright acidity. Good tannic structure. Plenty of ripe, red fruit with a touch of pepper and herb right on the mid palate. Develops to a warm spice and chocolate finish. It is a great wine now with ageing potential for the next six years. Proud to get 90 Points on the Wine Enthusiast award in 2022.
It pairs perfectly with red meat roasts such as lamb & beef. Cheeses with ageing and crystals and also beans and paprika/smoky stews or pastas.
