Overview

Overview

The Winemaker's Selection was introduced to allow experimentation and special parcels of fruit to remain separate so that they can show their true colours.

Fragrant, brambly aromas of blackberries, violets, cassis and star anise, with lingering hints of savoury spice and a flinty lift. The palate is plush and mouth-filling with mulberry cranberry and red-currant fruits, developing on the finish into more structural flavours of Chinotto and juniper. Granitic tannins contribute to the fine linear structure and length. Restrained oak handling brings subtlety to the wine while gently adding aromatic complexity.

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2015/2016 was characterised by a very warm and dry late Spring/early Summer period, finishing with a well-timed rainfall event at the end of January followed by mild weather conditions throughout February. These conditions restricted yields and led to high quality fruit potential.

Matured in 100% French oak, 60% seasoned French oak vat and 40% new and seasoned French oak barrels for 15 months.
