Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
An elegant wine with aromas of cherry and spice combined with fine and balanced oak. The tannins and are fine and graceful. There is a lovely concentration of complex fruit, oak and tannins that is carried across the palate by a line of fine acid that provides structure and length.
Vineyard Notes
2016 was an exceptionally compressed vintage in the Yarra Valley with the warm weather bringing the grapes to ripeness earlier than usual. Yields were kept to a low level through careful management and the berries were hand-harvested with the best fruit from the MV6 and 114 clones used for the Estate Wine.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was fermented in open vats and included 15% whole bunches to encourage perfume and fragrance in the finished wine. The ferment was hand plunged to gently extract the colour and tannins from the skins. After pressing the wine aged in French oak for ten months, (30% new oak) where the presence of lees promoted texture and mouth-feel.
Food Pairing Notes
Confit duck served with roasted beetroot and feta
