This wine is a brilliant dark red in colour, with a bright scarlet hue. The bouquet displays ripe, dark fruit characters of mulberry, blackberry and plum coupled with bay leaf, mint and spice. Underlying chocolate box and cedar notes are derived from French oak maturation. A generous, plush mouthfeel supports the bright fruit flavours, with hints of mocha and cassis, and a firm, fine tannin structure with balanced acidity providing lovely texture and length. While drinking well now, the wine will comfortably cellar over the next 10 years.
