Bright crimson with purple hues.
Lifted, fragrant blackberry-like fruits with dark chocolate and hints of cedar.
Rich, full fruit palate with fine integrated tannins and subtle oak.
A warm, dry growing season and balanced crops resulted in a finely textured, rich flavoured blend.
Fruit is sourced from carefully selected parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grown in the Yarra Valley. Fruit is harvested at 12.5-13.5 Baume to achieve a balance of fruit freshness, structure and ripeness. A very good season for Merlot. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into both static and rotary fermenters. The resultant must is then fermented for up to two weeks in skins prior to pressing and racking to barrel.
Alc/Vol: 13.0% pH: 3.49 TA: 5.7g/L
