Description

Fragrances capture black cherry, nutmeg, peppercorn, cedar and graphite.

This supple, fruity-textured wine tastes of dark fruits, blackcurrant and raspberry with nuances of vanilla and spice.

Picked at Wismer Vineyard on November 7th as grape sugars averaged 22.9° Brix.

After fermentation in neutral oak cuves, the wine was transferred for malo-lactic fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels, 10% of which were new. After eight months it was racked to older barrels to age for another five months.

At the time of bottling, in December 2018, alcohol was measured at 13%; residual sugar at 1.5 grams per Litre and titratable acidity, 6.8 grams per litre and pH: 3.45.

Vegan Friendly

Only 242 cases were bottled

Serve near 14° C with roast pork or lamb, beef stew or pasta in herbed tomato sauce.

Sourced from the Wismer vineyards on the Twenty Mile Bench, a personable nose of brambly red fruits, some herbs, red currants and savoury spice notes. It’s made in a fresh style that showcases the range of red fruits, garden herbs and savoury underbelly that’s all kept popping on the palate from the racy acidity.
