WINEMAKING NOTES
The fruit was crushed and undertook a warm ferment separately, before it was pressed to tank and left on lees to settle for 3 months. It was then blended and transferred to seasoned new oak barrels, where it spent 6 months to mature.

TASTING NOTES
Vibrant, cherry red in color, this medium-bodied style of wine exudes cherry spice and savory aromatics with generous and supple low to medium tannins while remaining beautifully balanced. Expect aniseed, black licorice, and pepper characteristics on the palate and a delightfully lingering finish.

★★★★★

Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Score - 95

★★★★

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
