The Farrside vineyard consists of black volcanic soil over limestone on a northeast facing slope. The vine rows run east/west to shade the fruit from over exposure. It is made up with a mixture of 114, 115, 777, 667 and MV6 clones. Matured in 50% new Allier Damy French oak barrels for 18 months.
Deep dark crimson red colour with light dark red hue. The nose possesses excellent intensity with perfumed scents of ripe dark cherries, dark ripe strawberries, meaty cedar, a touch of clove and some spice emanating from the glass. The palate possesses excellent weight, richness and mouthfeel with flavours of dark cherries, dark strawberries, some meaty game like characters, cedar, clove and spice. Superb power wave with velvet smooth tannins. Very long and persistent aftertaste of dark cherry, strawberry, meaty characters, subtle clove and spicy cedar.
Drink over the next 5-6 years (2012-2018).
Deep crimson, bright; a deeply complex and compelling bouquet of dark cherry, plum, vine sap and cold tea stemmy notes in harmony with the fruit; the palate is fleshy and seductively textured, with silky tannins a feature, drawing out the palate to a crescendo of exotic flavours; a beautiful wine that will enthral from the start to the finish. Drink by 2022.
