destemmed, 2 week open steel vat fermentation, daily pumping overs and cap punching, aged 25% new, 75% 1-4 year oak casks (50% French, 50% USA), unfined, unfiltered
full robe with violet touches. Toasted, grilled, raisin aroma – a slow to unfurl bouquet with depth and damp airs coming in. Blueberry and mineral combine on the palate, along with a refined chocolate note. Has a fine line of tannin, is a slow burn wine. It ends rather chunkily. “What is typical here is small grapes and thick skins,” Corinna Wright. From 2011. 2021-23 Oct 2009 A$30.
