Cherry, plum, peppercorn. A rich palate of dark cocoa, tea & leather.
IN ORGANIC CONVERSION
Excellent depth of colour, with vibrant magenta overlaying deep inky purple tones.
The nose has layers of berry fruit, plums and cherries with white pepper seasoning and hints of brambles typical of cool-climate Syrah. The toasty oak adds complexity to the nose and depth to the long and vibrant palate structure.
Fresh and vibrant, this would be a versatile match with most dark meat based main courses and should reward careful cellaring.
“A highly savoury wine, with aromas of cured meats, black olive and peppercorn dominating the nose and then coursing through onto the palate. Rooibos tea, dark cocoa and just the most subtle hints of rhubarb and leather also soak through, leaving a richly complex mouthfeel behind. Mellow and warming on the finish. Sip with: Lamb and Rosemary sausages.”
The grapes were sourced from two vineyards, our Winery and Livingston Road blocks. Vineyard management was carefully tailored to ensure ripe fruit and phenolics, with very low yields and good fruit exposure from early in the season.
