Fragrant spice, dark red berry and floral notes combine on a balanced and textured palate. Fruit for this wine was grown in Omahu Gravels (61%) and Twyford Gravels (39%) vineyards situated in the heart of the acclaimed Gimblett Gravels grape-growing district. Gimblett Gravels soils are made up of relatively recent alluvial deposits of gravel and varying degrees of silt and sand. Naturally free draining and low vigour soils, meticulous vineyard management and the warm 2016 growing season produced grapes with intense varietal character, depth and clarity of flavour. Naturally low yields and ‘green harvesting’ has resulted in good fruit concentration and richness, balanced with fresh natural acidity.
