A wonderfully complex bouquet of dried herbs and whole bunch complexity, combined with perfumed florals, plums, cherries, and star anise.
"This generous, vibrant red was grown on hillsides in the Southern Valleys and matured in French oak barriques (30% new). Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling and youthful, with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated oak, savoury notes adding complexity, and supple tannins."
- Michael Cooper, WineState Magazine
"The varietal signature of ripe dark cherry, plum, wild raspberry and barrel spices quickly give way to aromas of complexity and intrigue, minerality and flowers. Fantastic texture, core of fruit and flavour on the palate, Dry with firm chalky tannins, plenty of acidity, but overall an energy and vibrato that teases mouthfeel laced with fruit and spice."
