Deep red with purple hues, aromas of rich red and black berry make their way out of the glass. A sip and you delve in to intense flavours of plum, subtle dark cherry, cedar and oak spice. Tannins are fine and long, soft acidity drawing out the finish.

From the Winery
It was dry and cool from late August and into the New Year a small crop ensured that it was again an early vintage.
The fruit was picked in early March, destemmed and crushed before fermentation in Potter fermenters. The juice was racked and returned once a day for 2 weeks and at sugar dryness the skins were pressed the wine was then transferred to tank and Malolactic fermentation was induced, once the malo was complete the wine was returned to oak where it aged for 18 months in 3,4,and 5 year old barrels.
