Kirrihill work closely with the most dedicated Clare Valley growers to ensure the fruit meets the standards required to make the highest quality wine. Parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters, while being treated to regular pumpovers, followed by a course of drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannin from skins. The batches are pressed off into a selection of French and American oak for malolactic and ten months maturation, softening the tannins and enhancing complexity. Parcels are then assembled into the finished wine, the aim being to achieve a balance of terroir, while buiding structure and achieving true elegance.
A vibrant deep red colour. Classic Clare Cabernet characters of blackcurrant and crushed violet on the nose, supported by enticing cedary notes, black bean and hints of hoi sin sauce. The palate is chock full of plum, mulberry and dark cherry. A rich, full bodied wine whose fruit characters are balanced by delicious chocolate oak, velvety tannins and a long, satisfying finish.
