Winemakers Notes

This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth to the flavour profile. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked for three days prior to fermentation and then matured for 12 months with French oak to build complexity.

Vintage:
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.

Colour:
Deep crimson with ruby flecks

Palate:
Rich flavours of cassis, blueberry and chocolate lead to a medium body with leafy, tobacco like layers and fine grained, supple tannins.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next three to five years with careful cellaring.
