The wine has a deep red colour on release. The wine has a perfumed herbal aroma of bay leaf, black currant leaf, dried sage and black olive. A ripe black currant character adds to the wines charm. The palate is fruit forward with characters of black currant and plum dominating the front palate. The wine has an underlying spiciness and supple long tannins.
The fruit was harvested in early April 2015. The parcels were fermented in 8T fermenter with heading down boards. The ferment was rack and returned twice daily. Maturation was carried out for twelve months in French oak barriques (10% new barrels, 50% 1-2 year old barrels, 40% older barrels). The wine can be enjoyed young but will reward careful cellaring for up to and possibly beyond 2024.
