    Not a hair out of place. Hearthy blackberry and tar flavours come laced with chocolate and peppercorn. Attacks with flavour from the start and doesn't let go. Rating 91

    Tasting Notes

    The dark colour preempts a wine of dense, layered black fruit. The aromas of anise and cracked pepper are enveloped in classic blackberry. The glass coating texture gives way to freshness on the finish resulting in a fine balance. The structure imparted by oak and skin contact integrates well with the bright, but intense fruit.

    Vinification

    The fruit was de-stemmed, crushed and pumped over twice a day for nine days to enhance colour and flavour. Fermentation with our Rhône isolate yeast was at 18°-24°C. Extended maceration resulted in savoury, supple tannins and an approachable palate. The wine matured for 14 months in oak prior to bottling.

    Vintage

    2013 was a gentle year that yielded wines of great potential. The growing period presented a minor frost event in September and a cool early flowering period. Overall yields were 5% down on the already reduced 2012 vintage. A dry lead up to harvest led to a frantic run between early February and late March, getting all the fruit in at the right time. “A good year for the grapes and the people who work with them.” –Johnny Glaetzer, Grower Liaison
