Tasting Notes

WINEMAKER NOTES
Deep crimson-red colour. The nose displays charcuterie notes, slightly chary oak, and expressive dark fruit. The medium bodied palate is round and plush with dark fruit, and blackberry combining with and spice and soft tannins, making it a wine that's very approachable in its youth.

VINEYARD
Block 2 and Block 3 of our Tellurian vineyard growing on Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield.

VINTAGE
2016 provided ideal conditions for intense, full flavoured fruit retaining wonderful natural acidity. Whilst the entire season was relatively dry, good shoot growth and flowering was achieved followed by even fruit set in all varieties. Above average overnight summer temperatures and lower than average yields, led to faster ripening and our earliest vintage to date.

WINEMAKING
Grapes fermented in 4-5 tonne open top concrete and stainless steel tanks between 11  to 17 days on skins, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. Matured for 10 months in approx. 85% French oak and 15% in American oak barriques, prior to filtration and bottling. Seasoned oak (no new), allows full fruit expression in an early drinking style.
