Clear, bright ruby in colour with primary aromas of cranberry and red currant fruit supported in behind by more savoury wafts reminiscent of autumn leaves and forest floors. Light on its feet with flavours of cherries and raspberries surrounding a mineral chalky core. Sinewy and possibly more structured than some vintages.

Winemaking Notes

Decent amounts of replenishing winter and spring rain was followed by mild December
and January temperatures. All of this ensured favourable ripening conditions, a measured
pace to proceedings and later start to harvest than recently seen. As a result, the balanced
development of sugar and flavours in the fruit along with the retention of natural grape acid were the order of the day and ensured the resulting red wines from the region in 2017 look layered and pretty.
