This wine is wonderfully expressive and true to it's varietal. The nose is dominated by lifted tones of plums, red currants and glazed strawberries, with hints of meat spice and cedar. The palate is rich and coating with hints of black fruits and liquorice. The tannins are supple on the entry yet firm on the finish, with flavours of graphite, cassis and mulberries left to linger.
The shiraz fruit was hand-picked in the early hours of the morning and processed with 50% as whole-cluster on the bottom of the fermenters, and the other 50% destemmed as whole berries on top. This gives the wine a crunchy cherry skin tannin laced with stalky spice and dark chocolate alongside a pure palate of bright red fruits.
Rich flavours of apricots and guava are balanced by spicy hints of cumin and white pepper. Tones of freshly tilled earth, dried wheat and sea spray are dotted with hints of gooseberry jam and jasmine, all sitting atop of a fine core of bristling texture and granitic length. A slightly smoky finish balanced with crisp stone fruit dried thyme.
A experimental blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Gooseberry, nectarines and lemon curd, hints of brioche and toasted almonds. Pristine entry of green apple, stone fruit and subtle flavours of cut grass and honey suckle. A soft core of peach acidity and fine texture leads to a creamy finish of meringue and quince.
The rich aromas of this dessert wine show hints of brioche and ginger-nut on top of bolder scents of sultana and honey-toast. The palate enters with a concentrated sweetness developing into a broad, toasty finish dappled with hints of shaved almond and toasted spices. The syrupy texture is elegantly balanced out with a succulent acidity and spring-blossom finish.
