Bouquet
Wonderfully lifted, complex, ripe, and generous. The upfront aromas are of stewed red and black fruits with hints of uncooked fruit cake mix. This is supported by nuances of cherry cola and red frog confectionary. There are also complexities of nutty oak and slight hints of freshly cracked black pepper.
Palate
Layers of complexity, elegance and finesse. The upfront fruit flavours are of overly ripe raspberries and blackcurrant. The mid palate is broad with a cashew nut oak flavour. There are also hints of Chinese five spice and sweet soy sauce. The back palate is long with a silken mouthfeel and flavours that linger long after the wine is finished.
Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
5 – 10 years. (Decant before consumption)
Food Matches
Fillet Mignon, Venison pie with potato mash and fresh garden peas, Smoked cheddar cheese.
