Wood / Blend
After final blending of all the components the wine were transferred to 100% new oak barrels where it matured for 36 months for all the flavours and tannins to integrate. 80% French, 15% American and 5% Hungarian oak barrels were used for the maturation. The wine also spent 9 months in the bottle prior to release.
Shiraz: 89 % Mourvèdre: 8% Viognier: 3 %
The deep maroon centre is complemented with strong plum, oak and spicy tones. A bouquet of bell pepper, caramel and vanilla leaps out of the glass. The wine has a very soft front palate and fruity, but firm, mid palate with a fresh and long after taste. The Shiraz provides this blend with typical red fruit and spicy flavours, the Mourvèdre provides berry and fresh herbal aromas and the Viognier complements the overall aromatic sensation and softness to accompany the wood.
