Appearance: Clear, bright, deep red / purple with a crimson hue.
Nose: Lifted berry and plum tones with a floral lift.
Palate: Medium to full bodied with a soft velvety mouth feel. Focused and bright red fruits flow amongst subtle white pepper and cinnamon notes. Fine grained, medium toasted, new French oak assists in providing extra complexity and dimension to the finish.
Cellaring: This wine has the capacity to continue to develop 6-8 years from the release date (August 2018)
"Estate-grown, hand-picked and sorted in the winery before being crushed and destemmed, with some juice run off prior to fermentation, 19 days on skins, then 16 months in French oak (30% new). An elegant medium-bodied shiraz with red cherry to the fore, tannins and oak in support roles. Will repay time in the cellar. 92 points." - James Halliday, winecompanion.com, Aug 2019
