The colour is deep red with a purple rim. The nose appears
complex, while revealing spicy, peppery, rich Shiraz overtones.
The palate is full flavoured and accompanied by subtle oak
and fine tannins.
Harvested from our members' vineyards at optimal ripeness
during March. The fruit was taken to our winery where it was
crushed and destemmed. The "must" was transferred to stainless
steel fermenters where it was inoculated with a cultured yeast
to start fermentation. The wine was pumped over to assist with
colour and tannin extraction. Portions of the wine were
transferred to small barriques for maturation and Malo lactic
fermentation. Bottling was late in the vintage year.
A full flavoured wine that traditionally goes well with most
red meats-try it with beef or spicy pasta dishes.
This wine can be enjoyed now, however it will benefit
short term cellaring.
