The tannins are engineered through the inclusion of whole bunches and stemmed batches of Shiraz grapes grown to fully mature vines around Kyeema and Murrumbateman, grown to a mix of granite and shale soils which produce fruit that's well perfumed and elegantly structured as well as savoury, textured and rich. Fruit is brought to the wineworks near Collector on the southern tablelands of New South Wales. Grapes are treated to a natural vinification initiated by wild yeasts present on the skins. Individual parcels are fermented, gently pressed and matured in new and seasoned French oak prior to assemblage.
Lively crimson colour. Fragrant bouquet of dark cherry and blackberry, pepper and aniseed. A rich, textural mouthfeel over an elegant structure, it's plum and black cherry palate is lined with cocoa and savoury characters.
