A blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Shiraz matured in French oak hogsheads for 15 months. Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Ripe black raspberry notes jump out the glass quickly followed by liquorice and dark plum with underlying dark chocolate and vanilla. Medium bodied with a spicy richness and voluptuous mouthfeel the palate boasts flavours of ripe dark raspberries and strawberry jam over some liquorice, vanillin oak infusions and spice. Soft rounded tannins enhance the suppleness of the wine. Long aftertaste of juicy dark raspberries, strawberry jam, subtle liquorice and spicy vanillin cedar.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
