Bright ruby in the glass with intense and complex aromas of black cherries and smoke with a touch of minerality. On the palate it is rich yet refreshing with juicy acidity, supporting tannins and delicious notes of sour cherry jam and black pepper. The finish is long and savoury with drying tannins.
Enjoy now with classic roast chicken and mushrooms, wild game birds, charcuterie or a wide variety of cheese. Will also reward short-to-medium term cellaring.
Harvested in late September from our Whitty Vineyard in Creek Shores, the grapes were in nearly pristine condition so minimal sorting was required. The grapes were immediately crushed and destemmed and fermented in open top stainless steel tanks with regular punching down to extract colour and structure. After malolactic fermentation, the wine remained in stainless steel tanks until it was lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling in June 2020.
