Tasting Note An opulent bouquet of blueberry and dark cherry fruits with spice, pepper and chocolate notes. This is framed by autumnal characters and gun smoke oak. The palate is rich with dark fruits and cherries, pepper notes and a hint of earthiness. The mid palate has chocolate flavours with autumnal notes flowing through to cedar and gun smoke oak on the finish.
Technical Note

Winemaking Region: Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.

Clone: PT23. Oak Use: Spent 18 months in 50% new and 50% 1 year old French oak barriques.

Winemaking: The fruit was hand picked and de-stemmed to small 3 tonne open fermenters which included 25% whole bunches. Fermentation was wild with the temperature peaking at 28 degrees. The wine was hand plunged once a day and pressed at dryness. It then underwent a wild malolactic fermentation in barrel where it was left maturing. After 18 months the wine was blended, fined, filtered and bottled.


Halliday Wine Companion

Destemmed on top of 25% whole bunches, 5 days cold soak, 10-day ferment, matured in French oak (50% new) for 18 months. Typical Spray Farm elegance coupled with cool climate complexity based on flavour, not tannin structure. Drink tonight or in 10 years.
