Vines are all cane pruned to twenty five bunches per vine, further shoot thinned at the 10cm to 15cm stage to eighteen bunches per vine. The hand picked berries are placed in 8kg buckets and transported promptly to the De Bortoli wineworks. Bunches are destemmed, crushed and tipped into fourteen tonnes fermenters. Upon completion of ferments, batches are kept at a minimum of 25C and left on skins for two to three weeks. Batches are pressed, settled overnight and gravity filled to a selection of oak casks for a year's maturation at 16C. Components are then racked and gently aerated every three to four months throughout the course of age.
Deep vibrant red with purple hues. Complex aromas with tobacco and macerated pommace like fruit. Aromas of blueberry and bramble with underlying clove and leather characters. A fine, detailed, full bodied wine, plump and flavoursome with blackcurrant and spicy oak flavours, meaty mid-palate fruit flavours, fine grained tannins, structure, balance and excellent length of flavour.
