Vibrant, bright crimson with purple hues.
This wine has incredible lift and perfectly framed notes of rose hip and blueberries. This is coupled with an alluring scent of star anise, forest floor and brambles.
An elegant expression of a wine still definitively in the ‘Deep Woods Reserve’ house style. A medium bodied wine that tastes of redcurrants and summer plums that has fine, elegant tannin and integrated oak.
This wine may be enjoyed on release but will find further complexity over the next 5-10 years.
Each parcel of fruit was afforded the utmost attention in the winery with winemaking techniques aimed at optimising and enhancing the individual character of each block. Throughout the fermentation each batch was pumped over twice daily to gently extract colour, flavour and tannin from the skins. Upon completion of fermentation, the wine was drained from its skins directly to a combination of new and seasoned French barriques where it was allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 16 months.
