A slow start to the growing season in 2010 saw a late but good fruit set. The unseasonably cool summer was free of heat spikes with a dry and sunny autumn enabling a consistent and even ripening period as harvest approached. The vintage for our reds overall saw excellent flavour development and great tannin textures. The smaller crop provided added value in taste and ripeness.
Fairly challenging off-season weather condidtions created lower yields of 2.5 tons per acre in an otherwise good growing year. Fermented with Rhone yeasts to promote a traditional Cotes du Rhone flavour profile. Barrel-aged in French and American oak for 19 months contributed to a smooth and supple finish.
Bursting with cherry and a hint of pepper on the nose.
Raspberries and wild herbs on the palate.
Bright and vibrant.
Enjoy with rotisserie chicken, thick-cut pork chops, lamb stew or smoked cheeses.
