Deep ruby with a bright crimson rim. Seductive dark berries and currant pastilles on the nose and palate brushed with attractive subtle oak spice. A smooth yet assertive entry with delicious plum and mulberry flavours supported by well defined yet accessible ripe tannins for a textured fruity finish of pleasing intensity and length.
After pressing, the young wine was treated with American oak staves and malolactic fermentation was completed. The wine was left on the staves for a further 3 months for integration.
