Notes about product
After a wet winter, spring was warmer and drier than average. Late spring and early summer were relatively mild, resulting in good flowering and fruit set. There were several heat spikes in mid to late summer, but then a perfect Autumn followed with favourable ripening conditions. Despite a later start and an earlier finish, the compressed
harvest produced wines of deep colour, flavour and impeccable balance.
Grapes were harvested from February 16th to April 18th. The wine spent 26 months in 15% new American oak, 85% seasoned American and French oak hogsheads.
Rich and lifted aromas of Satsuma plum, mulberry and florals mingle with sweet spice, chocolate and savoury notes. Rich, plumy fruit and sweet spice balances with soft, velvety tannins. A complex, medium to full bodied wine showing hints of mocha, bramble and vanilla which flow through to the lengthy, fruitful, peppery and spicy finish.
