Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Deep garnet colour with a beautiful bouquet of black currant accented by notes of cedar, smoke, vanilla, leather, coffee bean and cigar box. A dry, medium-bodied wine with velvety tannins, good structure and moderate acidity. Flavours of ripe black and red fruits, oak, vanilla and spice fill the mouth. A lingering finish shows notes of black currant, leather, cocoa and sweet spice.
Production Notes
Loose crush, gentle but complete extraction of the fruit. A five day cold soak. Warm fermentation. Aged 16 months in American and French oak barrels.

Other Notes
Drinking beautifully now, but will also develop more complexities through 2015.
