Region: South Eastern Australia (Riverina & King Valley)
Appearance: Deep Crimson.
Bouquet: Red cherries and berries, dark plums, subtle backdrop of spices and lingering vanillin oak.
Palate: Takes the very best of each variety and weaves them together with the resultant blend a spicy array of dark red fruits layered with carefully integrated oak and fine grained tannins.
Suggested Cuisine: Saltimbocca, Moroccan lamb, Margarita pizza or Pork Spareribs in Chinese BBQ sauce..
General Characteristics: Dry / Medium Bodied
Vintage Conditions: Fresh early January rains prepared vines for what was to be a mild & then dry Riverina vintage. The milder temperatures allowed for wonderful expression of fruit aromas and flavours and allowed the retention of natural acid in most varieties.
Winemaking: The vineyards of each variety are monitored during the growth and ripening periods of the fruit until the winemakers achieve the right balance of fruit freshness, structure and ripeness of each variety that go onto this multifaceted blend. Each variety is fermented separately on skins for 5-6 days then blended together to emphasis the characteristics of each variety.
Wine Analysis: Alc/Vol: 13.8% pH: 3.5 TA: 6.3 g/L
Cellaring: Excellent to drink now or will give complexity with short term cellaring.
