This wine has intense flavours of spice, violets and blackberries. On the palate these flavours follow through and finish with soft, round tannins and notes of oak.
Low yielding vineyard blocks were hand selected by Ben, our winemaker for their potential to add structure to this wine. Soils: red Oakleaf and Hutton. Cooling sea breezes keep temperatures lower in hot summer months.
The barrels comprised 95% French oak and 5% American oak to add a fruit and vanilla component. Barrel maturation lasted for 15 months whereby the wine was racked only once.
