Appearance

Vibrant purple, deep crimson. Bouquet Sweet fragrant aromas of blackberries with underlying mint and hints of milk chocolate oak.

Palate

A generous wine that shows sweet and vibrant fruit on the fleshy palate with soft mouth coating tannins.

Vintage Conditions

The lead up to the 2009 harvest in the Riverina was one of the best on record, with refreshing rains during spring and mild December temperatures. This lead to fruit with flavour intensity and acid structure not seen for a few years. This all changed at the end of January with an unprecedented heat wave of plus 40 degrees for 14 days which saw ripening stall for 3 weeks. Overall the vintage was good to excellent. Winemaking Fruit was selected by the winemaker and picked when both flavour and Baumé were optimum. Warm fermentation temperatures and gentle colour tannin extraction were used to create a soft wine style.
