The grape juice is allowed to rest on its skins to extract the maximum flavor and colour from the fruit. The wine is them matured in predominantly new French oak barriques from an extended period of 12 months, adding distinctive yet integrated oak characters.

This audacious wine, with its bright brick red colours, lead with heady aromas of aniseed, blueberry, then captivates with hints of cracke black pepper, toasty oak, savoury characters and subtle smokiness. Intense fruit flavours of blue berries, red currants and radpberries are layeres with complex savoury and spicy characters and fine round tannins, A long, soft finish with a gracious fruit lift completes the experience.
