The colour is a deep, vibrant crimson.

Wild raspberry, blackberry and black pepper aromas predominate.

Savoury, spicy notes are also prominent along with some meaty overtones.

The Viognier has added a lifted aromatic quality and softened the tannins, making the wine more supple and appealing.

Multi-layered complexity is the aim.

Powerful but balanced, ripe tannins give the wine great structure.

Oak aging plays a minor part and the wine lives on its fruit.

Combined with the good acidity, these characteristics mean excellent aging potential.

Development of mineral, earthy and tarry characters are likely during bottle aging resulting in a wine that is able to be drunk in its youth but will age 5-7 years + with good cellaring conditions.
