Winemaker Marcus Milners Tasting Notes

Aroma: Clean and seductively smokey, with liquorices, eucalyptus, cloves and black currant jam.

Palate: Be on the lookout for a mouthwatering savouriness, with loads of black cherry, minerals, cedar and pencil shavings.  Balanced oaking gives a rounded tannin structure and a lengthy, toasty finish.

Climate: Mediterranean–rainfall ± 650mm per annum. The vineyard faces south-east and a cool westerly wind during the ripening period months ensures healthy balanced grapes.

Soil: Rich fertile soil, create ideal conditions for healthy, ripe grapes.

Vinification/Maturation: Grapes were hand picked from 40% old clone and 60% from new clone vineyards, with a yield of approximately 6 tons per hectare and at a sugar level of 25 ºB and was then fermented in stainless steel tanks.    Barrel maturation took place in new as well as 2nd fill barrels for 16 months.  90% of barrels are French oak with 10% American oak.
