Wine Colour
At release the wine is a dark red colour with ruby red hues.

Wine Bouquet
The wine has an enticing, lifted aroma of plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with a bouquet of subtle mocha and a touch of oak derived spice.

Wine Palate
The palate is plump & generous with ripe fruit characters of plum and blackberry. Mocha coffee and subtle spice from oak maturation balance the fruit flavours. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a fleshy mid-palate and supple tannin structure. It is a well balanced wine with great texture, good length and enjoyable fruit on the finish.

Cellaring Notes
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2023.
