The Details

In a Nutshell

Mixed red berry fruits with hints of oak combined to create a highly expressive wine.

Tasting Notes

A rich and spicy nose with dense dark cherry, blueberry and mixed red berry fruits. These are complimented by notes of Belgian waffle, milk chocolate and vanillin American oak. This is a highly expressive wine with great fruit concentration driven by mixed berries and dark, juicy cherry fruit. The tannin structure is chewy, and the oak has provided a sweet, chocolatey flavour along with hints of hazelnuts and toast. White pepper lingers on the finish.

Production Notes

The Shiraz grapes for this wine were picked at optimum ripeness and colour density. Individual batches of the fruit from different vineyards were fermented with 10% of the ferment whole bunches to give a cherry-like lift to the fruit. Half way during the alcoholic fermentation, a volume of the wine was run off to French barriques and the primary (alcoholic) and then malolactic fermentation completed in oak and later blended back into the majority parcel.
