The palate is elegant and has concentrated flavours of blackberry and Satsuma plums with silky tannins. The savoury finish is long and complex.
Vintage Notes: The 2013 growing season and vintage provided many challenges for growing and winemaking in the Great Southern region. Hot spells throughout the summer months, particularly late December and January, saw little rain until harvest. This particularly hot and dry period put stress on some blocks to maintain crop level. Though the dry spell brought harvest dates forward, all of Forest Hill's dry grown blocks retained intrinsic natural acidity and consistent flavour profile and tannin structure.
