Vintage ConditionsOne of the earliest starts on record due to lighter than average crops. The harvest was slowed in February due to heavy rain events, but with diligent vineyard management the fruit was harvested in good condition and at full ripeness.
Vinification and MaturationThis wine was made in a mixture of static, rotary and open top fermenters for a period of up to six days on skins. The fermentations were pumped over up to eight times daily or headed down and drained and returned twice daily. After pressing, the wine was matured in contact with American and French oak for up to nine months. Components of the wine were also matured in oak barrels for a similar period of time, before being blended together.
Winemaker Jim Brayne's Notes
ColourVibrant red purple.
AromaSpicy black pepper and dark plums dominate the lively nose. Balanced levels of fresh chocolate and graphite oak provides complexity and lift.
PalateA fleshy, fruit driven wine with fruit flavours of rhubarb and black plums coupled with varietal spice. The wine has a fine, long tannin finish with judicious but balanced oak adding balance and length.
