Bronze 2004 Royal Ag. Soc. Queensland, Bronze 2004 Aust. Small Winemakers Show, ***½ Winestate Magazine

This wine is a balance between full flavour and ease of drinking, provided by fermenting the fruit in traditional open fermenters and the use of a basket press. The wine was aged for 28 months in oak, giving it ample time to soften and mature – a luxury afforded by patient, hands-on winemaking.

Colour: Vibrant, dark red
Aroma: Dark berries with earthy tones and integrated oak
Palate: Soft and rounded, with dense, mouth-filling berry flavours and hints of licorice and vanilla.

Winestate: Earthy complexity to the red berry/chocolaty nose. Rich, balanced fruit
cake palate softening with age but still bright and youthful.
