Varietals (%’S): 63% Shiraz; 15% Cabernet Sauvignon; 12% Merlot; 5% Chardonnay; 5% Pinot Noir
Appearance: Pale salmon pink.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics of rose petal, lemon blossom and blueberries lead into sourdough notes and fennel seed spice.
Palate: Vibrant yet delicate fruits of blueberry and lemon on the front palate lead into the textural and subtly spiced characters of barrel fermentation – hints of nougat, aniseed and shortbread, before a refreshing lemon acid line ties everything together into a long, mouth-watering finish.
Oak Detail: Whole bunch pressed direct to seasoned French oak barriques for wild fermentation and subsequent 5 month’s maturation on ferment lees to build palate weight and texture.
Cellaring: Ready for immediate drinking and will continue to drink well over the next 2 years.
