More info

  • Picking of the Shiraz fruit occurred during the last week of February, while the later ripening Mataro wasn’t harvested until April 14th. Great emphasis was placed on picking at optimum ripeness to ensure the grapes didn’t become overripe and lose their colour and definite structure. 
     
  • Following harvest the Shiraz and Mataro parcels were open top, cool fermented separately, with grapes remaining on skins for 8-10 days. Cool fermentation retains purity, enhances aromatics and lowers tannin extraction resulting in a fragrant and highly structured wine. 
     
  • Use of oak was restricted to second and third fill French Hogsheads (90%) for six months maturation before final blending and bottling.
  • Colour:  Vibrant red/black colour with purple rim.  
  •  Aroma:  Intense bouquet of ripe Satsuma plums, a touch of  spicy and smooth milk chocolate.  
     
  • Palate:   Tightly structured palate with an abundance of  bright, jubey fruit notes and fine tannins.  
     
  • Food Match:  Gourmet Wild Boar burgers 
  •  Cellaring:  5 – 8 years
  • Abv 14.5%
