A medium to light bodied wine, the 2018 is fresh and youthful in the glass, showing bright red with purple hues. The nose has hints of cloves and asian spices, along with dark cherry and plum characters. The palate shows a good core of dark and red fruits balanced with a sway of firm tannins. The wine finishes with delicious, savoury, dark earth characters.
Sourced from 20 year old vines from the McKays Vineyard, planted amongst the limestone and slate soils of Watervale. The grapes are 100% de-stemmed and cold fermented as whole berries, finally seeing 6 months in old French Oak.
