Initial Shiraz aromas include ripe plum and cherry, followed by the leafy, cedary spice and red currant aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is rich and very generous, yet soft and supple. Balanced flavours linge throughout the long finish.
Select parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz were handpicked and crushed into open top fermenters. The balance were machine harvested and fermented in static fermenters. The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate fermentation and then cultuRED WINEry yeasts were added to complete the process. Different fermentation options allowed us to optimise each individual batch and promote excellent colour, rishness and texture. The wine was matured for eight months in 16% new French, Hungarian and American oak hogsheads and barriques, with the balance in one to five year-old French, American and Hungarian oak.
