The wine was fermented under temperature controlled conditions and then briefly aged in French wood to produce a fruit driven style that shows more of the ripe shiraz characters, little oak impact, a smooth textured, glycerin laden mouthfeel and early drinking. The wine has been bottled under stelvin to preserve the fruit character while eliminating
spoilage and bottle variation arising from cork taint.
"Spicy cherry and blueberry scents show very good intensity and focus. Lively and openknit, offering floral-accented black and blue fruit flavors and a suave, silky texture. The spicy note comes back on the finish, which is smooth, focused and long. Quite elegant, with the balance to age but plenty of upfront fruit, which makes it appealing right now."
