Crafted from premium cool climate Bellarine fruit, this wine is bold, fleshy and full flavoured. Pronounced depth and complexity have been achieved via whole berry fermentation, moderate ferment temperatures, fine grained French oak and patience. Delight in the lifted aromatics, deliciously haunting tannins and balanced acidity. Enjoy now or cellar over the next 4 to 7 years to relish the results of evolution.
“Whole berries cool-fermented with cultured yeast, matured in French oak (10% new) for 10 months. The cooler fermentation approach has worked well. The colour is very good, the bouquet is fragrant, the predominantly red fruits of the medium-bodied, long palate with intense red cherry/berry fruit, tannin and oak contributions positive but not threatening the fruit.”
