Matured for 18 months in mostly large format French oak. Midnight black in colour with a dark red black tinged hue. Blackpepper infused aromas of black cherry and liquorice intermingle with smoked meats, dried herbs and vanillin cedar. Medium to full bodied juicy blackberry and liquorice fruits lead the way with notions of vanillin cedar, graphite, subtle smoked meats and peppered herbs in the background. Polished yet structural tannins finishing with a balanced freshness and long refined aftertaste.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Alc. 14.6%

Other Reviews….
Fermented in mix of concrete, 5000L French oak and stainless-steel open fermenters, with 10–15% whole bunches. On skins for 12–14 days; 12 months' maturation in French oak puncheons, demi-muids and barriques (20% new). There is a vitality present – real energy and effortless balance on display. Deep purple in hue, blackberry, violet, licorice and clove merge into graphite and baked earth. A framework of fine oak tannins brings the wine home. Drink by 2030.
