Opulence and precision make this wine a perfect match with a platter of Jamon de Bellota, blue cheese and fig paste. This wine will partner perfectly with a duck in plum sauce, Asian greens and wood ear mushrooms. Chicken liver parfait with caramelized figs on crostini.

Appearance: Deep, dark purple with youthful garnet edges.

Nose: The nose is open and varietal with notes of white and black pepper, spicy cardamom and an elegant whiff of wisteria. Hints of rich candied orange peels, grated coconut, cedar, and cigar box add to the enticing aromas.

Palate: The intense concentration of flavours reflects the aromatics. Bursts of complex black fruits, small ripe berries and cherries in alcohol are supported by notes of orange marmalade, cinnamon syrup and ripe chewy tannins. A very textural wine, the finish is long, intrinsically structured with lingering flavours of caramelized oak and fresh crusty brioche.

The fruit is partially destemmed, berry sorted, cold-soaked and traditionally fermented. Maturation in small barriques is aimed at retaining the refined fruit and floral characters of the variety along with the more savoury, spicy elements derived from our vineyards in Margaret River.
