Deep colour with hints of violet on the edges, indicating youth.
The intriguing nose is of rose petals and a summer pudding of lifted red fruits, berries and a little lime marmalade from the cofermentation with the aromatic Eden Valley Riesling.
Wild cherries, blueberries, and mulberries and an impressive stucture balanced by spicy oak.
The opulent palate shows intense red berries balanced by soft velvety tannins and supple oak, resulting in an intriguing finish derived from the unique co-ferment.
