Product Description

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
Spring rainfall and cooler conditions of 2017 were ideal for flowering and fruit set. Warm gentle summer with no extreme heat days meant a slower ripening season with harvest a month later than 2016. 1st March to 4th April. 

WINEMAKING
Grapes fermented in 4-5 tonne open top concrete and stainless steel tanks between 11  to 15 days on skins, with hand plunging or pump overs once to twice per day. Matured for 10 months in approx. 90% French oak and 10% in American oak barriques, prior to filtration and bottling. Seasoned oak (no new oak), allows full fruit expression in an early drinking style.
