Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak have resulted in an attractive wine with red fruits, hints of spice with textural fine grainy tannins to match the fruit on the palate together with good focus and length.

Beetle Juice is named after the Cromwell Chafer Beetle (Prodontria lewisi). The Cromwell Chafer is a critically endangered beetle found at just one site in the world. This 81-hectare area of windblown sand dunes has been set aside as the Cromwell Chafer Beetle Nature Reserve to protect and monitor the habitat of this beetle.
