There are 5 parcels of Shiraz of estate grown fruit in the blend one of which is co-fermented with the Viognier fruit. The final wine, which is 7% Viognier, undergoes 12 months of maturation in the French Oak before bottling.
Vintage: A mild, dry winter and a spring with ample rain, was followed by a warm, even summer, interspersed with a timely rainfall events. This presented us with early flavour development, providing an intense varietal profile whilst retaining the freshness of the natural acidity.
Colour: Vibrant deep crimson with magenta hues.
Palate: Juicy black cherry flavours continue on the medium bodied palate with vibrant freshness to the ripe flavours and an even, gravelly tannin structure.
Cellaring: Ready to drink now, although will gain complexity over the next five to eight years with careful cellaring.
Made in Frankland River, Western Australia.
