Deep purple, inky hues characterise this wine.

The aromas are initially savoury and meaty, developing into a very concentrated and complex perfume with prominent spicy notes of cloves, cinnamon and violets.

The palate entry exhibits tremendous concentration of flavour and has gratifying length.

The heat wave that began in February 2009 caused rapid sugar ripeness, so judicious irrigation regimes had to be implemented in order to maintain a healthy canopy during the late ripening period. A cool spring and early summer made for an excellent vintage, particularly for the early-ripening varieties.

Ageing Potential - 8 - 10 years from vintage.
