Bright cherry red colour. This wine has an expressive nose full of red cherry and black berries with hints of wild flowers, aromatic spices and savoury oak.
Medium body with juicy fruit flavours of ripe red raspberries and concentrated red cherry. Supple tannins and oak create a fine powdered structure. The acidity is well balanced and the finish is warm and smooth.
Made from Marlborough fruit harvested at optimum flavour maturity. The wine was frequently hand plunged through ferment and underwent 100 per cent malolactic fermentation.
Drinking well now this wine will also cellar under careful storage conditions for approximately three years to five years from vintage date. Well matched with roast lamb or spaghetti and meatballs.
