The 2016 growing season was very dry, with significantly lower than average rainfall. A warm October advanced the season, resulting in early flowering, veraison and ultimately harvest. Despite this, mild February and March temperatures ensured length of ripening was normal, with adequate time for fruit to develop.
18% was matured with oak for up to 3 months, adding texture and complexity to produce a balanced, integrated wine.
Alc/Vol: 13.5% Acidity: 6.5 g/L pH: 3.61
Best enjoyed while young and fresh, or will gain further complexity with careful short term cellaring.
Great with chargrilled steak with fat chips and garlic aioli or beef Stroganoff.
Deep red with a purple hue.
Notes of plum, blackberry and cassis fruit with an undertone of leafy varietal character.
Dark plum and blackcurrant fruit melds nicely with the subtle, integrated oak, creating a palate with rich flavours and a long structure. A hint of leafy Cabernet character adds freshness to the palate and the savoury oak gives a long finish.
