The wine expresses the qualities of the Swan Valley that our family has admired of the region for over 100 years. The aim is to make a wine true to it’s site that captures the warmth and richness of the valley and affords great drinkability. A field blend of 58% Tempranillo, 30% Malbec and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon; the grapes were hand harvested and individually berry sorted prior to carbonic maceration and natural fermentation in a single French oak vat. Maturation followed in seasoned French oak barriques for 10 months.
A beautifully expressive aroma of Satsuma plums, black olives, rosewater and with a hint of aniseed. The wine tastes fresh and lively of pomegranate, cocao, maraschino cherries and is complimented by Tempranillo’s characteristic coal dust tannin structure.
