Lively and rich with the ripe fruit flavours elegantly supported by soft waves of tannin. Well balanced with a lingering aftertaste.
VARIETALS: Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre & Verdelho
NOSE: Lemony towards greenish fig, gooseberry with taints of ripe peach and passion fruit.
PALATE: Fresh and crisp with zesty lemon, strong varietal mouthfeel with lingering tropical fruit flavours.
A blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Verdelho. In 2017 the three varieties were fermented together, with the Mouvèdre which ripened later, fermented separately. Some fractions were whole-berry fermented and mixed with crushed berries. Some fractions were partially fermented dry and malolactic fermentation took place in 500-litre barrels with cherry wood heads and American oak staves. Interesting nuances were achieved with this unique barrel configuration. For added weight and complexity additional Shiraz and Grenache components grown in different vineyards on the estate were added.
