    Winemaker's Notes:

    The fruit was gently crushed in rubber-toothed Demoisy crushers then transferred to headed-down open fermenters, with a small amount of the Shiraz fruit undergoing carbonic maceration. The lifted nose emits floral notes of violet and lavender with savory meatiness and spicy red fruits. A velvety palate with raspberry and boysenberry fruits builds to a back palate of subtle spice and cracked black pepper. The silky tannins and a cinnamon notes provide for a long, refined finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A classic blend, showing the roots of its consistency, even in a challenging vintage; the bouquet straddles the line of fresh red fruits and savoury Provençal herbs beautifully; the palate is generous and soft, with an underlying structure providing freshness and contrast to the sweet fruit. Screwcap.

    Ruby-red. A strikingly fresh and complex bouquet displays scents of raspberry, blackberry, fresh rose, lavender and Asian spices. Racy acidity gives a tangy quality to the black raspberry and floral pastille flavors, which are impressively pure and focused. Silky tannins add grip to the long, sweet, palate-staining finish. As in most vintages, this is an outstanding value.

    On the nose, fruity and pleasant. On the palate, smooth and delicious. Even with 14.5% alcohol, it's not overpowering at all. Quite pleasant, very easy to sip, overall just a lovely glass of a medium-bodied, medium-rich wine.
