Colour: Deep purple-red.
Nose: Lifted notes of violets, dark berries and plum, enhanced by cocoa powder and savoury, spicy French oak.
Palate: Rich yet tightly packed with an array of concentrated dark fruits. The layered fruit is supported by enlivening acidity and fine, very long tannins which will enable ample cellaring potential.
Fermentation with submerged cap and small open stainless steel fermenters. Oak Maturation: 100% barrel matured for 15 months, with 35% new fine grain French oak hogsheads(300 litres) and the balance in 2, 3 and 4-year-old hogsheads
Varieties: Shiraz 100%, sourced from old vineyards in the Krondorf, Eden Valley Light Pass and Ebenezer regions.
