A hedonistic blend of four classy Burgundian Clones, closely planted, handpicked, basket pressed and matured in seasoned French oak, it's bright, complex and the real deal.

Colour: Vibrant ruby red

Nose: Complex bouquet. Morello cherry, rhubarb, charcuterie and dry herbs with hints of forest floor.

Palate: Approachable and soft; Satsuma plum, sarsaparilla and bresola, with fine, savoury tannins.

Vintage Notes: Warm spring providing ideal flowering and subsequent fruit / canopy development. An early vintage with bright natural acidity and even ripening.

Viticulture: South East facing site in a cooler and wetter region of the hills, just out of Woodside. 500m above sea level. Clones: MV6, 114, 115, 777. Soil: Free-draining clay and loam with strong water holding capacity.

Winemaker: Michael Schreurs

Titratable Acidity: 6.19 g/l

PH: 3.54

Accolades

Halliday Wine Companion 2018

Score: 93 Points

Wine review: 'Some whole-bunches go into the ferment, and there's a fragrant carbonic lift here with a blush of red and morello cherries. Spicy as all get out, sparky acidity, palate tight and just medium-bodied; sinewy and astringent needs time to flesh out.'

Wine Writer: James Halliday

The Wine Front

Score: 91 Points

Wine review: 'Rhubarb and roses, a little spice and meaty char, plum and dried herb. Medium bodied, plum and cherry, but savoury and herb-strewn too, with a little blood orange bitterness, fine grained tannin, and smoky oak to round it out. Finishes with solid length, and that pleasing bitterness again. Some personality here for sure, and a good drink with it.'
