Colour Very dark red with a purple hue.
Bouquet The wine opens slowly to unveil a heady mixture of concentrated and broody dark fruits, potpourri, bitter chocolate, intense warm spices, black olives and fine grained perfumed oak.
Palate The essence of the vineyard is displayed with powerful, yet medium bodied flavours of liqueur cherry and warm spices. A graphite minerality and age worthy velvety tannins draw out the long and savoury finish.
Cellaring This wine needs time to reveal its true character, 5 - 20yrs+. It would be a great accompaniment to Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs with a sticky red wine sauce, served with creamy garlic mashed potatoes and steamed fresh seasonal vegetables. This wine benefits from decanting 1 hour prior to serving.
Vintage A relatively cool season apart from a mid-summer heat wave. Although yields were much lower than normal, good vineyard management ensured the grapes ripened fully and had lots of complex flavours and balanced acidity.
