Winemaking notes
Fruit was harvested in the morning, and crushed with the rollers set apart, allowing some berries to remain whole for the ferment. The must was transferred to a sweeper arm fermenter for primary fermentation. The ferment was allowed to reach a maximum of 28°C during its course. When almost dry the wine was pressed and inoculated for malo-lactic fermentation. A combination of French and American oak was used during the maturation of this wine. After approximately 12 months of maturation the wine was racked and blended, before receiving a light egg white fining prior to final filtration and bottling.

Tasting Note
This wine shows a very attractive spicy Shiraz lift with a lovely oak background. The palate is typical of the Margaret River style, with a spicy edge to soft cherry fruit. Overall, this is a fresh, vibrant and modern style of red wine with a lovely spicy lift.

Serving Suggestions
Barbecued veal cutlets with potato rosti & parsley walnut pesto.
