Total acidity 5.85 g/l
Dark ruby/purple in colour.
Prominent, but controlled aromas of blood plums, mulberries and brambly hedge row fruit supported by fainter hints of dark chocolate and subtle pepper spice.
In the mouth the same dark fruit notes persist and roll in waves out through the back of the palate, bordered by a fine, but ever present tannin frame.
The wine is matured for 12-14 months in barrel with a focus on minimal handling and the use of oak for structural framing rather than imparting significant oak flavour.
Excellent with BBQ ribs and spicy sausage, but also with an everyday club sandwich.
