Vineyard Notes:     Sourced from the northern region of Margaret River.
Harvesting Notes: Fruit was harvested in the early morning.
Winemaking Notes: Grapes were immediately crushed to static fermenters
for ferment. Pump overs occurred 4 times a day for 8 days
before gentle pressing, malo-lactic fermentation and then the
wine was racked to a range of new and mature oak. During
maturation, the blend was periodically racked and returned to
oak for 12 months prior to filtration and bottling.

WINE CHARACTERISTICS

Nose: Complex nose of gentle herbs, blackcurrant, anise and spicy
oak.
Palate: Plum and sweet blackberry Merlot fruit complements
the leafy mulberry characters of the Cabernet Sauvignon,
enhanced further by long grained tannins.
Cellaring Notes: 2 years
Food Pairing: Homemade BBQ pizza.

Region:  Margaret River
