Style

Full bodied rich and complex, the colour is dark. The aroma is lifted with varietal characters and oaky scent. A wine that can be enjoyed on it’s own or with food.

Fruit

The fruit for this wine was harvested from the Killian and Chairman’s Lane vineyards with careful row selection yielding the best possible parcels for use in this blend. The fruit was harvested
within the range of 13.5 to 14.5 Baume, once it had developed a full intensity and complexity of flavours, embodied by a full rounded tannic structure, important for mouthfeel and long, complex flavours on the finish.

Vinification

Vinification

Fruits are fermented nicely under a temperature controlled stain steel tank. Pump over three times a day during fermentation to fully extract tannin and flavour from skin. The depth of fruit flavour and bold tannin structure achieved meant that from the beginning this wine was built to last. Fermentation was completed in French oak barrels.
