While relatively cool, the greater Margaret River region experiences an earlier vintage and can support red grape varieties which would not ripen so well elsewhere. The cooling influence of the Indian Ocean permits complex flavours to develop while warm days ripen the tannins. Picked at optimum ripeness, all vines are closely husbanded, harvest is carried out to healthy levels of baume. Fruit is destemmed but not crushed and each batch is handled separately. Treated to a cold maceratation and moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase texture and aromatics. Following vinification and extended maceration, the wine is matured in a selection seasoned and new French oak barriques.
Vibrant red with purple hues. Mulberry, cassis and capsicum nose, multi black fruit characters, fragrant with blueberry and cassis. Mulberries, cassis and plum flavoured palate, supported by chocolate oak notes and exquisite licorice tannins. Delicious to drink young for its primary fruit characters, to accompany beef stroganoff, dukkah crusted lamb, mature cheddar or romano porcini tortellini.
