Winemaking:
This wine was made with Frankland River fruit from several blocks, picked at optimal ripeness to give depth of flavour. Harvested in the early hours of the morning, the fruit was cold soaked prior to fermentation and then matured for 9 months with French oak to build complexity.
Vintage:
A dry Winter and fleeting Spring was followed by a warm growing season with welcome rainfall in December and January leading to full, healthy canopies enabling excellent yields and great flavour development.
Colour:

Violet crimson with magenta hues
Nose:

Fragrant node of blackberries, chocolate and pepper.
Palate:
Flavours of black cherries, chocolate and vanilla with layers of white pepper and spices, typical of Frankland River Shiraz
Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now, although will gain complexity over the next three to five years with careful cellaring.
Alcohol:

14.5%
