Intense red and black fruits combine with spice and toast nuances.
Intense fruit and structural, the palate is long and fresh with beautiful weight and poise.
Crushed into a combination of open top and static fermenters. Following a gentle three day pre-fermentation cold soak the wines were inoculated with cultured yeast. Colour & tannin were extracted from the skins through pumping-over for a period of up to ten days. After pressing the wines were transferred to a combination of stainless steel, to give freshness, and oak barrels, 10% new to give richness & complexity, for a maturation period of fifteen months. Once optimum maturation was obtained the parcels were blended and prepared for bottling. After the hot dry end to 2013, near perfect January weather has resulted in an outstanding vintage of intensity and wonderful balance. The whites are pristine & pure, with great length & line while the flavour packed reds are showing early signs of a superb year in the Hunter Valley. The best red vintage in 50 years. Arguably, one of the greatest red vintages in living memory.
