Warm temperatures at the onset of vinification and an average of three to five days post ferment maceration have extracted soft fleshy tannins and formed a solid palate structure. Maturation in a combination of prior use American and French oak barriques has integrated the wine and softened the tannins, achieving a generous Shiraz style.

The palate is expressive of its cool climate origins, rich yet elegantly structured with generous dark chocolate, blackberry and spice flavours on the palate, finishing with soft tannins.
