Tasting Notes:

Deep and dense purple with dark ruby edges.

Aroma

Youthful, perfumed summer berries leap from the glass.

Fresh red cherry and raspberry are complimented by a lick of blackberry and a hint of spice.

Palate

Juicy and vibrant palate full of summer strawberries, red cherry, raspberry with just a few hints of blackberry. Supple  and soft tannins lead into a fresh and crisp fruit finish  

Don’t be afraid to chill me in summer.


Vineyards:

Sourced from a single vineyard in the low-lying hills  of McLaren Vale. These relatively young vines are planted on a west facing slope in 50 million year old calcareous silt stone overlying a bedrock of limestone. The vines were hand pruned and shoot positioned  to produce an even and consistent canopy and fruit distribution.   


Winemaking:

Machine picked fruit that was added straight to the bottom of the fermenter with  no crushing resulting in whole berries. Open fermented for 12 days and gently hand plunged twice a day. Pressed to seasoned French oak and matured for 9 months. No fining or acid additions and lightly filtered at bottling.
