    Winemaker's Notes:

    The bouquet opens with bright purple fruits before a darker layer of black olive and cracked pepper emerges. On closer inspection all the different varieties are on display with a rack full of spices and a touch of pot-pourri. The palate is equally complex with lovely sweet fruit opening before more savory elements of black olive, cured meat and game take over the mid palate. Cinnamon, bay leaf and nutmeg have a role to play on the long mineral finish. The tannins are fine and chalky with a mouth watering quality that drives you back. It's a well balanced wine with plenty of interesting elements and will cellar well for at least 10 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Mid-crimson and Bright colour; a bright, effusive and quite pure red-fruited bouquet, with the palate delivering an even, fresh and finely detailed finish; unencumbered by heavy handed winemaking, with plenty to like.

    Bright purple. Cherry and dark berries on the musky nose. Offers spicy blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that gain sweetness with air. Chewy tannins add a firm edge to a finish that features notes of candied licorice and cherry pit.
