Description

This wine is almost black in colour. The nose is plummy and spicy and complemented by obvious but well integrated oak character. The palate is luscious, rich and soft and very, very generous. It’s juicy and fruity, it’s long and it’s round. It has not been fined or filtered and is very approachable now, it will continue to develop over the next 10-15 years.

Winemaking Notes

After crushing, the juice was fermented on skins for about 10 days and then allowed further skin contact for another 14 days. Matured for 38 months in French oak hogsheads before being blended with 31% Shiraz.

Growing Conditions

Made mostly from Merlot grapes grown on 45-year-old Riesling rootstock in a vineyard at the northern end of Clare.

Divided options here, but the majority enjoyed the slightly aged/developed characteristics. A soft easy, gentle wine with "luscious" varietal fruit enhanced by well intergrated tannin and oak treatment.
