5 Gold, 2 Silver
Braised lamb shoulder with roasted root vegetables.
French and American oak.
The colour is a burgundy hue and an inkier ruby red colour closer to the center of the glass.
The aroma has elementary fruits of raspberry and mulberry, but its site also offers some very unique and distinctive aromas of blackberry and intriguing notes of a spice and pepper, and the perfume of blueberries.
The palate is initially intense sweet fruit of cherries and ripe raspberries, but balanced by a tangy acidity, spice from the French and American Oak and an integrated tannin structure. This is a masterful essay in winemaking and sense of place. It's a delicious, confident drink. There is some cream and spice from the French and American Oak but it's all about the pure fruit. Whole bunch extended maceration, integrated and balanced with fruit.
