Other Reviews….
Five clones from seven blocks, cold soaked, 14 day co-fermentation with 2% viognier, matured with a parcel of declassified Reserve wine in a mix of new and used French oak. A very expressive bouquet, with cherry blossom and spicy aromas, the medium-bodied palate picking up the story without blinking with its layers of seductive red and purple fruits. Gold medal Canberra Regional Wine Show '18. Drink by 2037.
