The Pyrenees portion is picked off forty year old vines grown to gravel/quartz soils, a terroir that's ideal for elegance and structure. The Yarra Valley component is sourced off twenty year old vines, planted to propitious clay and broken rock soils, contributing mid palate flesh and freshness. An essential part of Andre's excellence is the exacting work over the sorting line, entirely eliminating green stalks and grapes which can be borderline over or under ripe. Winemaking is highly traditional, fruit is destemmed, gently crushed and treated to four weeks on skins, where it develops splendid softness and remarkable complexity, followed by a course of eighteen months in an extravagantly high proportion of new French oak.
Dark opaque scarlet. Black fruit nose, perfumed with violets and blueberry, ribena, meat grills and dark cherry jube. Blackberry and cassis palate, layered with wine gum and licorice notes, framed by a cosset of luxurious French oak, the final word in tannins, statueasque, chiselled yet affable, expansive yet reserved and refined.
