Deep crimson in colour with hints of purple at the rim.
Intense lifted aromas of ripe red berries play with notes of violet, pepper and dark chocolate.
Full bodied with complex forest fruits, plums, spice and velvety tannins leading to an elegant, long finish.
2019 was an excellent year all round. Yields were very low and intense flavours developed across all varieties. We use a diversity of individual wines in barrel to work for this blend. The blending of this wine is always the most exciting event in our winemaking calendar, especially after our 2018 Ladies Shiraz was named in the Top 100 in the US Wine Spectator, we had a lot to live up to this vintage!
This wine was fermented using wild yeast, with its slightly unpredictable nature, this builds more complexity in the wine. This wine was matured in various ways over 12 months as there are many components in the blend. Some parcels were matured in new and old oak, including 150-yearold English oak casks. The remaining parcel was maintained as a fresh fruity parcel in stainless steel.
