Blackcurrant fruits, iodine interest, bay leaf lift, a wonderful energy, fruit purity and precision. A youthful wine with vibrant acidity, fruit volume, a ripe and fine tannin framework that supports the fruit intensity.

Hand harvested, destemmed and individual berry sorted before being crushed into our Yarra Yering 600kg open fermenters. Hand plunged twice daily until fermentation is complete, some extended time on skins until tannins soften before deciding to press based on taste. Gravity filled to French oak Bordeaux shaped barrels completing malolactic fermentation in the cool underground cellars. 40% new oak, 15 months maturation.
