The wine is deep red in colour with black cherry, spices and forest floor aromas. It is medium bodied with strawberry and cherry flavours. The flavours are backed by subtle spices and cedar from the carefully selected French oak barriques this wine was matured in. The wine has a silky texture and a lingering finish.
Eight percent whole bunches were included in the ferment and it was matured in new French oak for nine months. This wine is made from a single clone, MV6, one of two we grow on “Yaraandoo”.
This is a premium blend for you to enjoy now, or with aging in your cellar allowing the complexities to continue to improve this wine.
|Notes From The Winemaker:||The 2015 vintage started with an even budburst and early strong growth was followed by warm temperatures through November and December resulting in an excellent flowering and fruit set. A dry autumn led to perfect ripening conditions post veraison, with the wet humid conditions that adversely affected many of Australia's warm climate wine regions during veraison not appearing in the high altitudes of the Southern Highlands. Therefore disease pressures were low and excellent clean fruit was harvested across all varieties. Only 100 cases produced.|
