Tasting Notes

This is a rich and full-bodied Gimblett Gravels blend. Densely coloured, it has a bouquet of dark cherry, blackberry, dried herbs and cedar. It is soft and generous in nature and can be enjoyed as a youthful wine, but possesses sufficient tannin to age gracefully for many years.

Food Pairing

Great match to hard cheeses and red meat dishes.

Vineyards and Winemaking

This wine was blended from grapes grown within the renown Gimblett Gravels
Winegrowing District. These deep stony soils have excellent drainage and low vigour, ideal for the production of high-quality red wine.
