Fruit was sourced predominately (75%) a low yielding vineyard in Drumborg (Henty) with vines planted in the 1980’s. The balance of the fruit comes from Geelong. The destemmed fruit ferments in a combination of 5,00-litre open vats and 3,000-litre wooden fermenters; the fruit in the vats gets punched down, while the fruit in the wooden fermenters is pumped over daily. The wine then matures in a mixture of old and new (approximately 10%) French oak of various sizes.
Dark red core with black toned edges and a light red hue. Blossoming out of the glass are perfumed aromas of violets, red to dark cherries and strawberries infused with fresh herbs. Subtle forest floor and spice notes are also evident. Juicy cherry and strawberry fruits are supplely layered across the palate with notions of forest floor, dried herbs, anise and spice threaded through the back half. Polished tannins finishing with a juicy freshness, plenty of spice and a long moreish aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
