A medium bodied wine with well-developed flavours of cassis and walnut with an earthy complexity. This well-cellared wine shows a flavour development and smoothness that makes it delicious drinking at BBQ’s or with pizza.
Red summer berry fruits dominate the nose with delicate perfumes of potpourri providing additional aromatic lift. Additional spice and interest come from the fruit components of Syrah and Pinot Noir. Dry on the palate but with a pleasing texture from small amounts of fruit acidity and tannin. Drink over the next year.
This complex blend showcases a great vintage on our Havelock North vineyard. Dark and brooding on the nose with black doris plum, aromatic jasmine and underlying mineral notes of graphite and tar. The palate is broad and soft with supple front palate tannins and soft vanilla oak enveloping the fruit.
Dense and exotic aromas of apricot, musk and rose. Finer nuances of cardamom, cumin and orange blossom all add to the complex tapestry of this wine. Without interruption, the aromas flow through onto the palate adding yet more layers and interest. Poached stone fruit, cinnamon and star anise along with a crystallised ginger note are a few of the many fruit and spice notes to be found. Full and rich this wine is best enjoyed on its own or with spicy Asian cuisines
Powerful aromatics equally proportioned between ripe fruit and complexity from fermentation and barrel aging. The fruit notes are in the viognier spectrum of apricot and peach whilst the complexity is largely a result of barrel fermentation and aging. There are nuances of grilled almonds as well as the mealy note of freshly milled grains. The palate is broad, rich and well structured. This wine also contains a line of mineral character that is present on the nose as a suggestion of the aroma of wet gravel and moves through the palate manifesting itself on the finish as a chalkiness of texture.
