Sight: Vibrant opaque violet with deep red cherry hues. Clean and bright.
Nose: Fruit forward, slatey driven style. Subtle dark fruit profile highlighted by perfumed
aromatics of violet and lavender. Good fruit sweetness balanced by a very well integrated wood regime. Nuances of warm mulberries and black cherry perform well on the backdrop of the wood- showing rich, luscious fruit on the mid-palate coupled with fresh tobacco leaf and spice.
Palate: Clean entry with fruit that follows the nose. Medium weight and a structured mouthfeel carry the purity of the fruit well. Well balanced acid adds to the structure, with both varietals’ ripe tannin structure evident. Medium finish that delivers balanced wood and alcohol without detracting from the fruit.
Style: Ripe, fruit forward and focused. Wonderful colour and depth. The wines’ style could be considered robust, spiced and primal with great focus on the fruit purity.
