All our wines are bottled using screw cap, our preferred closure. This is because the screw cap is free from taint, is a more reliable seal, and considered superior for maturation in bottle.

5 Stars | 95/100 | May 2013

Only 275 bottles of this wine were produced using a single 225 litre barrique. About one-tenth of the grapes were fermented as whole clusters to introduce extra complexity and perhaps longevity. The wine already has a notable perfume of berry and spice that may be partly attributed to the whole bunch fraction. An elegant rather blockbuster style that I find very appealing. Nicely layered with red cherry, violets and subtle spice flavours. A lengthy finish impresses. A wine with terrific potential that is easy to appreciate now.

This has elegance on a grand scale with an array of fruit and savoury flavours, including black cherry, plum, violet, star anise and new leather. Whole- bunch fruit gives a savoury influence that will deliver spicy complexity with age. ( 10 yrs )
