Wine Colour
On release, the wine is a medium deep red with purple hues.

Wine Bouquet
This wine has an intense aroma of lifted spice and dark blood plums along with subtle apricot character. Underlying aromas of vanilla, and cherry’s dipped in dark chocolate add to the complexity of the aroma.

Wine Palate
The wine is medium bodied and quite juicy in texture. It has a delicacy and displays sweet, concentrated fruit flavours of juicy plums and blackberry, along with subtle spicy apricot. This is a well integrated and balanced wine with an enjoyable persistence to the finish.

The wine is crafted for immediate enjoyment but will also cellar in ideal conditions up to 2011.
