Stunningly ripe and concentrated berry fruit including ripe black cherry fruit, hints of liquorice, violets and spice. The flavours on the palate are intense and long lasting with soft tannins leading to a clean finish.

2014 was the first vintage with Michel Rolland on board.  We tried a new technique or two but basically the most important philosophy (as always) was to pick at full physiological maturity.  So expect a lot of tannins, lots of ripe fruit and very long aftertaste.  We added back 6% press juice (ultra-concentrated) to achieve the desired mouth feel.  The wine was bottled on 19 November 2015.  Released late September 2016.
