This inaugral vintage is a combination of Shiraz grapes from three vineyards in the Coldstream region of the Yarra valley. The grapes are fermented as whole bunches before spending 12 months in french oak. The wine is dark purple in appearance with aromas of blackberry, violets and macerated cherries. It was designed to be a 'vin de soif' and as such it is very drinkable with elegant softness and notes of black fruit and black olives. Strong finish complete with gripping tannins and hints of black pepper.
