Tasting notes

High winter rainfall, followed by a cool spring and summer delivered gradual ripening and a late harvest. Hand picked on 20th March, 85% destemmed to open fermenter, 15% whole bunch to closed puncheon with 40 days maceration. Matured in French oak (10% new) for 20 months. No fining or filtration. "Rich and opulent, with a brocade of red and black berry fruits garnished with spice and a little pepper; oak and finely ground tannins join in on the finish." James Halliday
