An unassuming grape that has found a perfectly suited site on a sheltered part of our lower terrace 'C Block', tucked in a corner where successive flood events have deposited rich layers of mineral laden soils and overlaid them with gravels. This strata is sometimes stony on the surface but with veins of richness not far beneath. The vines enjoy balanced growth once established and consistently produce tight bunches with small berries. Fruit selection occurs in the vineyard from the best performing clonal selections during the season.
Full bodied, fine and powerful, with considerable length. Spicy notes indicate the advanced ripeness, and this wine will richly reward cellaring. Pairs perfectly with seafood, pasta, poultry and creamy garlic sauces.
