    The wine has generosity, volume of flavour, and softness… It's drinking well now. Good value.

Region Yarra Valley
Colour At release, the wine has a deep rose colour to the centre with a vibrant garnet hue to the edges.
Nose There is a delicate perfume of red cherry and strawberry with underlying delicate spice.
Palate This is a light to medium-bodied wine with a supple yet plump texture. On the palate, there is generous red cherry flavours with hints of strawberry along with a touch of spice from French oak. The finish is long, graceful and wonderfully persistent.
Vintage Conditions A warm and dry season with good rainfall in December helping with the early heat in January. The season was characterised by intermittent heat spikes followed by cool changes. Harvest commenced in the latter third of February but then a week of temperatures over 35°C, brought everything on and ready at the same time, causing the picking to progress at a frantic pace. In the end it was a short, challenging vintage, however the resultant wines look incredibly good.
Oak Maturation The wine was matured in second and third fill premium French oak barriques for 10 months before being fined, filtered and bottled.
Cellaring Notes Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will cellar over a medium term under ideal conditions.

    The Taylor family source this wine from the Yarra Valley. It's typically perfume with notes of sour cherry and spice. The palate is chock full of plush red fruits with a spicy edge to it. Ripe plummy and will a velvety smooth finish.

    Medium to deep red colour with the suggestion of a purple tint remaining and a note of chocolate on the bouquet. Dark cherry as well. The wine is has generosity, volume of flavour, and softness in spite of a good backing of tannins. It's drinking well now. Good value.
