2022 Light Dry Red Wine


Winemaking techniques used encourage an exotic floral fragrance coupled by an expansive fruitful palate and a fine tannin framework. Highly aromatic with rose petal, blue violets and plum fruits. The palate has a light touch yet is soft and full of juicy fruits, a faintest smokey grip from the use of stalks bringing some structure and drive to the finish. These varieties complement each other beautifully with the perfume and spice of the Pinot and the underlying structure of the cool climate Shiraz.

Pinot noir was fermented with whole berries in 600kg fermenters and hand plunged gently. Shiraz was 100% whole bunch fermented, left untouched for 10 days before destemming to complete ferment as whole berries. The individual components spent 9 months in used French oak barriques in our underground cellar before blending and bottling.
