Enjoy with osso buco or braised lamb shanks.
30% new and 70% older barriques and hogsheads of French oak.
Deep crimson-purple in colour.
Focused aromas of dark fruits wrapped in the warmth and comfort of oak's vanilla with dark chocolate, liquorice and black pepper spice.
The palate has a densely knit structure, loaded with fruit and finished with fine mouth coating tannins. While youthful, the poise and completeness of the wine is exciting.
This wine is a blend of the best parcels from the Lange vineyard in Frankland River, which were planted in 1997 and 2000. The soils are lateritic gravellysandy loams over granite. Yields are low to moderate. Maturation occurs in 30% new and 70% older barriques and hogsheads of French oak. After approximately 18 months in barrel, a good integration of oak and grape tannins is achieved and blending occurs around September. The wine undergoes egg white fining and light filtration prior to bottling.
