At release, the wine is a bright red with a vibrant purple hue.
The wine has lifted strawberry and cherry notes with an underlying savoury earthiness and restrained spice and cedar characters.
The wine is medium-bodied with flavours of ripe cherry and fresh, light red berry fruits along with savoury toast and sweet spice characters. The palate is sublimely soft and silky. Subtle oak characters of cinnamon and cedar add to the overall complexity of this fruit-driven wine.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2020.
