Description

A delicate spicy approach with fruit-forward balance leads to a lingering aftertaste in this New-World style blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. A relatively short maceration of the grape skins (15 days) has led to a new-world style, ripe and fruit-forward red blend whilst retaining great complexity. The wine was matured in 225 litre French oak barrels (35% new, 35% second fill and 30% third fill) for 18 months before bottling.
