Lots of berry and plum fruit, with spicy notes on the nose. A flavoursome palate with savoury stewed and currant fruit flavours, which merge well into lingering oak flavours and soft tannins.Rebsorten
85% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet SauvignonAnbau
The Shiraz is grown on loam soils. The vines are 14 years old and are trained to a double cordon with a single foliage wire. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted on clay loam soil with a thin top layer of limestone gravel. The vines are also 14 years old and are trained to a single cordon with single foliage wire.Ausbau
Both the Shiraz and Cabernet grapes were harvested at over 13.0Be, as flavours became balanced. The must was fermented at temperatures, between 25 and 28 degrees in order to help extract flavour and colour components from the grape skins. The skins were then gently pressed with only the free run fraction being kept ensuring that soft tannins would be present in the final wine.
