Seductively rich on the palate, as flavours of dark chocolates and plum unwind along the impressive length of supple, focused tannin. Uncannily European in style, a palate of old world savouryness and wonderful, textural mouthfeel.

Fruit is harvested at night and crushed into small open top fermenters. After a day's skin contact, the musts are inoculated to a Rhône isolate yeast, chosen for its ability to ferment efficiently at cooler temperatures. Following several days of vinification on skins, hand plunged thrice daily, batches are transferred to a selection of completely new French and American oak hogsheads for malolactic. Director's Cut is topped up and treated to a weekly battonage over six months. Barrels are racked and refilled for a further term of maturation.
