This wine has layered aromas of cassis, rose floral and toasted spice. The palate begins with fresh blackberry and cherry fruit, developing savoury characters in the mid palate; including dried herbs, earthy tones and dark toasted spice. A seamless blend, this wine shows freshness and a balance between the two varietals.
The fruit is harvested when flavour ripe, fermented on skins for 5-7 days and pumped over 4 times per day. It is then pressed and completes primary fermenta- tion in barrel which integrates the oak and imparts soft approachable tannins. The wine then undergoes malo-lactic fermentation and is matured for a period of around 15-18 months in oak hogsheads and barriques.
The wine is matured in oak hogsheads and barriques; 60% French, 40% American, 30% new, 25% one year old, 20% two year old and the remainder in 3 year old oak.
71% Shiraz, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon
