Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose displays notes of red cherries, plums and boysenberries, followed by hints of spice.
Palate: The palate is youthful and offers notes of plums, sour cherries and apricots with a fine tannin structure.
Pairing: A beautifully versatile food wine, this wine will go just as well with a summer barbeque as it would with a hearty beef stew in winter – a wine for all seasons!
Cellaring: Drink now to 2022.
