Dark red-purple. Brooding mulberry & ripe strawberry aromas with base notes of mocha oak fill the glass. The mid-palate of this full-bodied wine overflows with a compote of dark berries & earthy minerality. The integrated fine-grained French & American oak further enhance the texture & length of the wine.
Wine Maker Notes
Shiraz (predominantly clones 1654, BVRC12 and BVRC30), grown on both red & black soils over limestone on the Davey Estate Vineyard, are selected for this wine. The wine is hand-crafted in small open and static fermenters to maximise the potential of each small parcel of fruit. Maturation for an average of 14 months in fine grained American and French oak hogsheads softens, enhances & integrates the fruit & structural components of the wine.
