"Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red with purple hues. The nose is bold and powerfully intense with youthfully primary aromas of ripe black and dark red plum fruit entwined with blackcurrants and redcurrants along with an array of exotic herbs and spicy oak. The vitality, depth and power are features of the aromatics. Medium-full bodied, very rich and succulently sweet fruit flavours of ripe dark-red and black berries, and black plums intermingle with layers of blackcurrants and waves of exotic spicy oak. This has great depth and concentration, the power and richness of the fruit sweetness matched by supporting, fine-grained tannin extraction and structure. The fruit remains vibrant and full of vitality, exuding youthful primacy. The wine carries with great presence to a solid, very long and sustained finish of sweet fruit and spicy oak. This is a powerfully concentrated, succulently sweet Merlot/Cabernet blend with exotic oaking, matching fine structure and youthful vitality. Match with roasted red meats and semi-hard cheeses over he next 10-12+ years. A blend of 61% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Cabernet Franc from the ‘Gimblett Gravels’ vineyard, hand-picked and fermented to 13.8% alc., the Merlot around 25 days on skins and th Cabernet Sauvignon approx. 35 days on skins, the wine aged 19 months in 40% new French oak barriques."
