Single vineyard site between Margaret River township and Rosa Brook in the Wallcliffe sub- region. Cold-soak 3 days, open-fermented, pressed into new & aged oak. Unfined, lightly filtered.
Dark coffee chocolate, vanillan spice & cassis, blackcurrant & briary earth. The palate is creamy & lush, with blackcurrant & chocolate flavours, fine tannins. Fleshy & flavoursome, ripe & textural all wrapped neatly in cedary, vanillan, toasty wood.
