2017 has produced luscious and supple wines, ripe and complex, what can be enjoyed now but with great potential to age. This wine is sourced from established vineyards within the Wilyabrup Valley region of Margaret River. Once harvested, the fruit was gently destemmed and passed over a vibrating sorting table. Following fermentation this wine was matured in French oak barrels for 14 months.
This wine is very deep crimson colour. The nose shows an array of mulberry, blackcurrant and cassis, with hints of Ceylon cinnamon and French oak. The palate is soft and generous, with more red fruits mixing with spice and dark chocolate. Supple tannins linger.
Mix with slow cooked lamb shank and roasted winter vegetables.
Or try with chargrilled asparagus dressed in extra virgin olive oil and topped with dollops of labneh, with a side of freshly grilled pita wedges.
