Red fruit, cherry and plum with an underlying hint of blueberry, spice and violet.
The wine is medium-bodied with soft, silky tannin and has amazing varietal fruit characteristics. The cherry and blue fruit flavours are juicy, sumptuous and linger on the palate.

The 2016 growing season in the Geographe wine region was warm and dry, allowing for even ripening of all varieties. The Grenache, Shiraz, Touriga Nacional and Tempranillo were sourced from several vineyards in an area of the Ferguson Valley that is perfect for growing these varieties and which produces fruit rich in flavour with tannins that are fleshy and ripe. The Mourvèdre, sourced from Frankland River in the Great Southern, gives a spicy edge to the wine.The fruit came into the winery at a perfect ripeness and was de-stemmed before being fermented/macerated on skins for six days. The wine was then pressed off and racked into seasoned French oak puncheons for eight months. Bottled December 2016.

Small wonder this is complex in terms of fruit, texture and weight, all within a medium-bodied framework, oak a little more obvious than expected, but balanced. There is a jumble sale of red, blue and black fruits, seek and ye shall find.93
From the first sip I was hooked on this delicious Rhone blend. Vibrant and bursting with enticing fruit flavours with the three varieties working in perfect harmony. Each mouthful you get a burst of lively fruit. Great drinking in the short term while those primary fruit characters are so pronounced93
