Oozing style and class, refined yet lucious, she will definitely leave a lasting impression. Swipe right with a rack of lamb or after dinner with dark chocolate or gooey brie.
Sourced from vineyards just north of Coonawarra, the Wrattonbully region owes its success to site selection. These grapes were grown on shallow terra rossa soils with broken limestone through to the soil surface. These shallow yet ideal soils have given rise to an elegant yet bold wine, truly representative of it upbringing. These tough love soils have rewarded us for the 08 vintage. These grapes have developed a complex intensity and elegance that is reflective of the fantastic vintage conditions in Wrattonbully.
The fruit was powerful and elegant and therefore minimal intervention was required. The primary ferment was warmed to 30oC for 4 days before the wine was fermented dry. The wine then completed malolactic fermentation in barrel and was matured predominantly in new French and American oak barriques for 18 months prior to bottling. Bottling occured in June 2010.
COMPLEXION: Dark ruby red with a youthful purple hue.
PERFUME: Lifted aromas of varietal and ripe blackcurrant, forest berry and briar. There is a distinctive floral, violet note
melding with the cedary, coconut oak aroma.
TASTE: This is a luscious and full flavoured medium to full bodied wine with lovely poise, concentration and balance. The tannins are dusty and mouth-coating, and combine well with the ripe, sweet Cabernet fruit.
