  • Colour

    A very attractive bright crimson purple.

  • Aroma

    Lifted, rich ripe Grenache fruit, pure and youthful; typical of this vineyard. It also has a distinctive dried herb character that adds complexity.

  • Palate

    Soft, juicy, open palate, with lingering fennel and aniseed. Very easy to drink.

  • Wine Showcase

    Fermented with whole bunches before spending minimal time in barrel. Freshness as a result is paramount. This is grenache with its head held high. It's bright with both red and black cherry flavours though saltbush, aniseed, assorted florals and dry spice notes are here in abundance. It's ribbed with tannin, feels velvety on the tongue, and pulses impressively through the finish. It is a delight of a wine.
