62% Shiraz, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot. Deep garnet with pale garnet hues. Lifted aromas of red plum, mulberry, blackcurrant and black pepper, with supporting notes of thyme, bay leaf, charcuterie and cedary oak. A concentrated and powerful palate of mouth-watering ripe plum, blackberry and black and red currant, balanced by savoury white pepper, anise and tarragon, fresh and buoyant acidity and an exceptionally long, fine tannin finish. With a delayed start to picking due to a mild ripening period, grapes were harvested until mid-May. A wet winter and spring, followed by a mild summer with regular rainfall, ensured healthy grapes. Careful handpicking and sorting maintained quality. After processing, the wine matured for 18 months in 19% new and 81% seasoned French and American oak hogsheads. ABV 14.5%
