Tasting Note

The bouquet is a complex array of dark fruits, spice with thyme, earthy notes and cedar oak.

The palate is tight yet rich with dark plums and cherries. This gives way to spice and savoury flavours with a long cedar oak

The wine displays great acid/tannin balance which will allow the wine to age gracefully over 10 to 15 years.

Technical Note

Winemaking Region: Bellarine Peninsula, Victoria.

Clone: MV6

Winemaking: Fruit was hand-picked and de-stemmed to small 3
tonne open fermenters and cold soaked for 5 days. 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 malolactic fermentation in barrel where it was left maturing for 15 months. It was then blended filtered and bottled.

Oak Use: 15 months in 50% new and 50% 1 year old French
oak barriques.


Halliday Wine Companion

The wine has the drive and freshness that is so typical of the great '17 vintage. The colour is bright and fresh, the palate long and lifted on the finish, red berries to the fore.
