Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright crimson with vibrant purple hues, with a dark cherry and plum with subtle nuances of cedary oak. Juicy, ripe cherry and plum with hints of spice balanced by nutty oak providing the wine with a soft velvety finish.
Vineyard Notes
Very good winter rains were recorded across all grape growing regions throughout South Eastern Australia during winter, prior to the 2012 growing season. Mild weather with moderate rainfall was observed throughout spring, providing excellent soil moisture profiles, which promoted healthy vine canopy development without the necessity for early season supplementary irrigation. The summer months were generally warm to hot across all regions, where these conditions produced one of the very best vintages in recent years
Production Notes
On the completion of picking the fruit was transferred to the winery to be crushed and de-stemmed to stainless steel fermentation vessels. During fermentation, the parcels were allowed to warm to peaks of around 28°C then cooled back to 18-22°C, for maximum varietal flavour and colour extraction. Regular pump-overs and rack and return techniques were carefully managed to ensure fresh fruit flavours were retained throughout the winemaking process without too much extraction. Selected parcels were matured in French and American oak. Final selection criteria prior to blending included freshness and generosity of ripe berry flavours combined with soft, integrated tannins. The wine was blended and clarified, with the aim of making a wine of youthful fruit characters, softness and fine, balanced tannins.
Food Pairing Notes
Perfectly suited to Italian pasta and pizza.
