The Details

Tasting Note Pronounced notes of blue fruit, cassis flower and violets with distinctive site characters of sour cherry and Asian spice. The note of Christmas cake spice is a real nod towards the vintage influence. An initial soft, red berry fleshiness with silky tannins is followed by generous texture on the palate.
Best Enjoyed With Seared duck breast with tamarillo cream sauce served with roasted baby beetroot, Asian greens and couscous, or chickpea pasta with Calabrian-style tomato sauce, sauteéd field mushrooms and chargrilled capsicums.
Treatment Fruit was handpicked and ferments were hand plunged daily, then two to three times a day until fermentation was complete. The wine was pressed into tank and racked to French oak barriques. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation during its ten months in barrel.

Accolades

Really intense and fresh, deep and dense
This has plenty of ripe red cherries, and the whole bunches drive some attractive sappy, forest-wood aromas into the feed. Black tea, wild berries and cherries really pop on the nose. The acidity here is a feature. Really intense and fresh, deep and dense, with concentrated red cherries, blueberries and dark cherries on the finish. Impressive. Drink over the next seven years. Screw cap.

It has concentration as well as softness and harmony
Deep red/purple colour. A seriously deep, detailed bouquet of dark fruits, a sheen of walnut from oak, the palate rich and fleshy, sumptuous and texturally lovely. It has concentration as well as softness and harmony, varietal and textural charm, and great persistence. Almost a fruit-bomb, but a throughly impressive pinot.
