Tasting Notes - Nose – Black currants, dark plum, cassis, blue berries, mocha, cedar, cigar box and subtle choc mint.
Winemaker Notes – At release, the wine is a youthful pale straw colour with vibrant green hue to the edges. The wine has ripe stone fruit aromas along with hints of tropical fruit and subtle citrus zest. Enticing sweet spice and savoury cashew nut from the French oak add complexity to the bouquet. This is a medium-bodied yet sumptuous wine with an enjoyable creaminess to the mid-palate. Flavours of juicy white fleshed stone fruit are evident along with cleansing citrus at the finish which has wonderful persistence and length from the use of quality French oak.
