Season

Season

A relatively wet start to the 2022 season with high rainfall in winter and full soil moisture profiles in spring. A very dry but unseasonably cool summer resulted in a long and steady ripening period across both whites and reds. This aided fruit intensity and flavour development whilst maintaining great natural acidity.

Vinification

Vinification

Our take on a 'light dry red'- a medium-bodied blend of Syrah, Cabernet and Merlot. Deliberately aged in seasoned French oak for just 6 months to maximise drinkability.

"Deep ruby with purple tints. Fragrant with plum, violets, and anise spice aromatics. Medium weight with a supple glide to the fine tannins that accentuates the slippery nature here. Dark fruits are well layered amongst tobacco leaf and boudin noir tones. A very appealing cool climate style that will work well alongside a meal"

- Stuart Knox, The Real Review

"A blend of Syrah (aka Shiraz), Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A nicely presented blend with ripeness of fruit and an even-handed winemaking approach. Brings the strengths of each red grape variety to play: Shiraz sweet red fruit, touch of Cabernet blackberry and cassis with a light leafiness, and Merlot’s soft spice and gentle aromatics. Nicely measured tannins focus on fleshy, red fruits and spice across the palate. Once again, we see a youthful energy and brightness – a smart, well-balanced wine"
