Tasting Notes

Vibrant purple with a ruby hue. Bright and vibrant with aromatics of cassis and forest berry mixed with white pepper and green olive. Notes of toasty oak hover ever so slightly in the background. The palate is elegant and medium bodied with plum and red currant fruit flavours, with notes of spice adding complexity. Bright yet balanced acidity and fine, long tannins are supportive of the fruit. Light on its feet but with plenty of punch.

Vineyard Notes

This wine was sourced from the north-facing Oakridge vineyard sited in the grey alluvial loams of Coldstream.

Winemaker's Notes

A traditional winemaking approach was used to produce this wine – 70% whole berry and 30% whole bunch fermentation in open vessels followed by 14 months maturation in French oak puncheons.

Vintage Notes

A cool, long vintage with abundant rainfall and very low cropping levels has resulted in wines of great purity and balance.

“This subtle and very well-put-together wine creeps up you slowly with its aromas of red fruits, pink peppercorns, mountain herbs and some floral notes. Medium bodied, this has excellent depth and persistence whilst remaining light on its feet. And it finishes with more than enough fine-grained and persistent tannins to merit seeing how this will evolve over the next 4–6 years, if not longer.” – Philip Rich
