Deep, dark garnet with a burgundy hue. Aromas of ripe boysenberry and blueberry are intertwined with the savoury complexityof black pepper and slate. The palate is seamless and voluptuous with mouth-filling fruit. Fine, graphite tannins come racingthrough and give the wine unique persistence.

This wine pairs best with wild game dishes.

These grapes were hand harvested. 80% of the grapes were destemmed , 20% left in whole clusters, before undergoing fermentation in open-top French oak vessels and stainless steel tanks. The juice is then innoculated and aged in 35% new french oak barrels for 17 months.

10 – 15 years from vintage.

While the season was wet through the Spring, it was dry and warm through ripening period, yielding an iconic vintage.

What The Critics Say...

Bright and glossy with subtle and elegant spices, with more red and blue fruit than black. Diffusive and chalky tannins dwell upon the red cherries and plums on the palate, with white pepper and flowers in the streamlined, linear finish. Quite engaging now, but can hold, too.
