Matured for sixteen months in oak barrels (97% French and 3% American) with 14% new French and 1.5% new American.
Med-dark garnet with crimson hues.
The nose is inviting, with brooding dark fruits, blackberries and bramblybriary fruits. The Upper Yarra Merlot gives hints of black olives and liquorice and the Cabernet provides the classic cassis and leaf core.
The wine is medium bodied, vibrant and balanced. A soft and fleshy palate displays cassis, plum, cedar and spice flavours. Restrained oak and soft tannins frame the wine nicely. A great luncheon style claret from an excellent vintage.
2015 was a mild and dry Yarra Valley vintage, one of the coolest since 2009. Yields were back to average (following the small 2014 crush). Cool nights and few very hot days resulted in good acid retention and vibrant fruit flavours.
