Hither & Yon is a bit like saying 'here and there' or 'up hill, down dale', but it does have a touch of Shakespeare about it. The wine itself is a rich, sumptuous style with smells and tastes of dark fruits and choc-mint. It is all supported by bright acidity, fine tannins, and a dry, juicy finish. It will kick on for at least another 5-years in the cellar.
Appearance: Intense deep red core with vibrant purple rim.
Nose: Fresh black and blue berry fruits, lifted violet floral, mint chocolate.
Palate: Balanced black fruits, fresh acidity, medium body and a silky finish. Minimal oak influence, mocha and nutmeg spice, some forest floor characters which integrate with the black fruits seamlessly.
Food: Black Angus flat iron steak with rocket, grilled pear and walnut salad.
Cellaring: This wine will gain complexity over 5 to 8 years if cellared properly. If opening in its youth, it will benefit from decanting a couple of hours prior to serving.
