One of our limited edition wines, with only 119 cases produced. This unique blend of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon holds aromas of raspberry preserves, black plum, leather, cedar, subtle baking spice and violet. The palate has smooth, supple tannins showcasing flavours of ripe cherry, blackberry, hints of black pepper and vanilla. A bright acidity carries through to the long finish. This wine is drinking beautifully now especially after time in a decanter. It will continue to evolve well in your cellar through to the year 2025.
The 2018 vintage benefited from a very hot summer, leading to ripe fruit with complex flavours. The Syrah was hand-harvested late October and small batch fermented before being pressed into both French and American (30% new) oak barrels for 16 months. The Syrah was then blended with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Appassimento Cabernet Sauvignon for added richness and complexity. The drying period on the Appassimento Cabernet Sauvignon was 81 days.
Enjoy this wine with dishes such as hard and aged cheese with charcuterie, prosciutto wrapped figs, peppercorn crusted steak, barbecue spare ribs, lasagna, mushroom ravioli, and ratatouille.
