Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A delicious, medium-bodied wine with rich fruit flavours of cherry, black currant, cassis and a touch of spice. A luxurious and round wine packed with flavour and backed with gentle oak.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 vintage was moderately warm in Bendigo, providing ideal conditions to ripen the fruit. Through sensible use of bunch thinning, yields were kept low and harvesting by hand meant that the fruit was delivered to the winery in pristine condition.
Winemaker Notes
In the winery the fruit was destemmed and partially crushed before being pumped to open vats for fermentation. The wine had extended maceration on skins with gentle hand plunging to extract tannins and colour. Once fermented to dryness the wine was racked off skins and matured in seasoned French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine was blended, not fined and bottled with minimal sulphur additions.
Food Pairing Notes
Slow cooked shoulder of lamb
