The wine shows bright fruits on the nose with aromas of raspberry, cherry and a hint of eucalyptus. The palate shows smooth pure fruit with refined notes of sour cherry, plum and cranberry. The palate is full, fresh and lively with a dense yet very supple tannin structure and a well-balanced, integrated acidity leaving a lingering finish.

The wines individually spent approximately 8-12 days in vineyard specific batches for the primary alcoholic fermentation with gentle pump-overs for colour and tannin extraction being performed twice daily. The wines then underwent malolactic fermentation providing complexity and fullness. Certain batches were carefully barrel matured for 14 months in second fill French oak barrels and a small un-oaked component was used to provide a fresh and lively character.
