For those after something different (and bold).

This is not a shy wine. Generous and deep, it has notes of warm summer blackberries, five spice and dark cherries. It’s rich and slightly dusty like cocoa powder and tobacco leaf. Share with friends who love to be first to try something new. A perfect pairing for curry from your local Thai or Indian eatery.

Tasting Notes

Lifted fruit, warm summer blackberries, five spice and dark cherries. Generous and deep perfume.The palate is also deep and evolving. Firm structured tannin interwoven with generous fruit and spice. This is not a shy wine and the volume of fruit is beautifully tempered with the texture of tannin and savoury characters. A mineral gravelly-ness is also an important part of the tasting experience. Great length and potential for the future as well as enjoying now.

Process
